Ex-youth worker charged with rape was known for ‘wrestling’
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire prosecutor says a former youth center counselor accused of raping one boy and groping another in the 1990s denied the allegations when questioned by police but acknowledged being reprimanded for “wrestling with children.”
A judge set bail at $3,000 Monday for 79-year-old Frank Davis, of Hopkinton, one of seven men arrested last week in connection with a broad criminal investigation into the Sununu Youth Services Center, formerly known as the Youth Development Center, in Manchester.
A prosecutor says Davis was reprimanded and transferred because of his habit of wrestling with teens.
Davis’ attorney says he denies the criminal allegations.
