 A former Pembroke Academy student convicted of assaulting female classmates in 2019 has been arrested on charges of failing to properly register as a sex offender following an incident with a sixteen year old girl. 

Police say Griffin Furlotte had one Snapchat account, three Instagram usernames and two email addresses that he did not report on his sex offender registration forms, as required by the state. 

The 20-year-old was required to register as a sex offender after pleading guilty to one felony count of nonconsensual dissemination of private sexual images for sharing a video of a 14-year-old girl on Snapchat. He also pleaded guilty to two counts of simple assault, for sexual abuse that involved two different victims.

These social media accounts were discovered through an interview with an underage girl who she said she met Furlotte through Instagram. In late April, the girl met Furlotte, whom she had briefly been dating, at Knowles Pond, a secluded area in Northfield, according to police reports. Shortly after, her ex-boyfriend received a series of messages, which made him think she was in danger, police said.

Pembroke officers corroborated the girl’s account after serving a search warrant to look through Furlotte’s iPhone, according to court documents.

When the girl’s ex-boyfriend arrived at Knowles Pond to help her, he said Furlotte and his close friend, Samuel Booker, held him in a choke hold and beat him. The ex-boyfriend had red marks on his neck and was spitting blood, according to the police report. 

A video later surfaced of Furlotte recording himself rapping in his car, once stating “my name’s Griffin, and I rape women.”   

Furlotte has violated the conditions of his parole several times, according to a document filed by the Merrimack Superior Court Thursday. Though he was required to have no unsupervised contact with minors, Furlotte was reported by the Concord police as spending unsupervised time with three underage girls in November in addition to the unsupervised meetup at Knowles Pond. 

Furlotte failed to inform his probation officer of either encounter with the police.
