Dover Police Seek Sex Offender Released in Massachusetts

Posted on November 19th, 2010 No Comments

Authorities in Dover are looking for a sex offender who was released by Massachusetts police earlier this week.

According to officials with the Dover Police Department, 51 year-old Brian E. Mahoney was arrested in Boston earlier this month for failing to register as a sex offender in Massachusetts. Authorities released Mahoney on Tuesday following a court hearing. Police are looking into what led to Mahoney’s release.

Mahoney remains wanted in New Hampshire for charges out of Dover. The charges against Mahoney include duty to report, theft, simple assault, and criminal threatening. Mahoney was previously convicted of attempted aggravated felonious sexual assault in Massachusetts.

Dover Sgt. Brant Dolleman said police do not have any reason to believe that the community is in danger, but there is some concern about Mahoney being at large. “He’s wanted with a criminal history of sexual assault and other assaults in the past,” Dolleman said.

A Troy man was found guilty Wednesday of sexually abusing two boys a year ago.

According to court documents, a jury returned guilty verdict against 63 year-old Lee Lashway for first-degree predatory sexual assault of a child, which is a felony. Lashway was also found guilty of two misdemeanor charges of endangering the welfare of a child. He is facing 25 years to life in prison. He will be sentenced in two weeks.

The incidents of assault occurred between June and October 2009 at Lashway’s home and involved boys who were 4 and 7 at that time, according to the indictment.  Lashway’s attorney, William Roberts, maintained his client’s innocence and claimed his accuser was seeking retribution against him. The older boy, now 8, testified for the prosecution.

Lashway had a previous conviction in Massachusetts for sexually abusing children in 1995.
