Alleged Weare rapist arraigned
The Weare man charged with raping a 20-year-old woman last week was arraigned yesterday and is being held without bail.
Tyler Janvrin, 20, was taken into custody late Friday night at his residence on Daniels Road. A Dover man, James Cheney, 21, was also arrested separately in connection to the same incident. The two men are believed to have sexually assaulted the woman multiple times last Tuesday, according to the police. The arraignment was held at the district court in Goffstown.
Janvrin has been charged with two felony counts of aggravated sexual assault – the most serious classification of sexual assault under New Hampshire criminal law, carrying a prison sentence of 20 years or more. He and Cheney each face an additional two counts of simple assault and single counts of false imprisonment, criminal restraint and witness tampering.
Janvrin is on a 72-hour no-bail hold while the state Department of Corrections decides whether to revoke his parole, which was granted in January for an attempted robbery charge in Dover in 2011. Janvrin will then be held on $50,000 cash bond and will not be allowed contact with the victim or co-defendant. He is scheduled for a probable cause hearing March 28.
Cheney has been released on $25,000 bail and will be arraigned March 28.
Weare town attorney Catherine Baumann is prosecuting the case. Baumann did not indicate yesterday what sentence she is pursuing.
