Most charges dropped against NH mail carrier
MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire mail carrier accused of luring children into his truck has been sentenced to a year in jail with all but one month suspended after pleading guilty to one count of simple assault.
Six other charges of aggravated felonious sexual assault have been dropped against Frank Saucier of Tyngsborough, Mass.
Saucier was sentenced Monday in Manchester.
He was arrested last year, when Manchester police say he let several children into his official postal van to “play house,” and allegedly spanked a 10-year-old boy. Saucier’s route was on Manchester’s west side.
