Concord man faces felony charges of witness tampering
A Concord man accused of soliciting a minor for sex earlier this year has been charged with two additional felonies after the police said he recently tried to prevent the girl and her mother from speaking with the police.
Brad Lizotte, 48, was charged last Tuesday with two counts of witness tampering. He allegedly threatened the mother and spoke with her about having the girl withhold testimony about her involvement with him, according to an affidavit cited by the Portsmouth Herald and confirmed by Sgt. Tom Graella, commander of the New Hampshire Internet Crimes Against Children task force, which has been investigating Lizotte.
Lizotte was arrested last year and charged with four felony counts of having asked the girl via text messages to have sex with him and having sent her at least one explicit photo. He is being held in Rockingham on $20,000 cash bail at the Rockingham County jail, Graella said, and he is scheduled for trial in November on the original four felony counts.
