state of New hampshire v. GP (2018) Cheshire County Superior Court Docket Number 213-2018-CR-00175
GP was charged soliciting prostitution contrary to NH RSA 645:2-A. GP was facing an A. Misdemeanor and up to one year in jail. Based upon the records of the New Hampshire State Police and the testimony of the State troopers involved it did not appear the state had proof beyond reasonable doubt that GP had solicited prostitution. However, the Judge could have very well ruled the other way. When the alleged victim testified about the solicitation of prostitution incident Attorney Lynch asked her if she knew the specific date of the incident. The women responded she did not know the specific date, but she knew the month and year. Attorney Lynch then challenged her and asked her if she was absolutely sure of the month and year. The women responded she was absolutely sure of the month and year and she proceeded to tell the court why she remembered the month and year so clearly. Attorney Lynch then made a Motion to Dismiss the Case because the time frame was beyond the Statute of Limitations. The Judge then decided he would rule on the Statute of Limitations at the end of the trial. The Defendant, GP, was found not guilty of soliciting Prostitution.
