The Muslim refugee, Mohammod Rafique , is described as a man who arrived from Myanmar two years ago.
That would make him one of the 19,000 plus Rohingya refugees we have admitted from Burma (aka Myanmar) in the last ten years. See here just yesterday.
Prosecutors wanted a $50,000 bond but the judge set bail at $15,000. If he gets out, will he return to court or disappear into the woodwork of America like so many other Muslim refugees charged in a variety of assault cases in recent years?
From WMUR-9 (hat tip: Jeannine):
A Nashua man is facing accusations that he had inappropriate contact with several young girls.
Mohammod Rafique is facing six charges, including two counts of felonious sexual assault. Nashua police said the incident happened in late August and involves four girls, including a 7-year-old.
“We’re alleging these offenses have had a great and substantial effect on both them and their parents,” prosecutor Don Topham said.
Rafique was described in court as a refugee from Myanmar who has lived in Nashua for two years. An interpreter was provided by phone. [Interpreters will run up his legal costs to taxpayers big time!—ed]
Authorities said the charges involve inappropriate touching and happened at some sort of gathering.
“Through the investigation, we learned that he was acquainted with one girl’s family,” Lt. Kerry Baxter said. “He had attempted to offer them money and gifts and things like that to get one or more of the girls back to his house.”
