Forty-2-year-old Charles Paul has been arrested five times since completing a 22-year sentence for rape last year. When he was convicted in April on a weapons charge, a judge declined to impose a suspended sentence and scheduled a sentencing hearing for July 1.
In the meantime, Paul was arrested last week and charged with eight new crimes, including felonious sexual assault. Prosecutor Jim Reams told the New Hampshire Sunday News he’s frustrated about the judge’s decision.
