CANTERBURY - The N.H. Attorney General's office said that Canterbury Police Chief John Laroche forced an underage police explorer to have sex with him at the Boscawen boat ramp back in 2000.
Court documents show a conversation between Laroche and the alleged victim talking about an overnight ride along.
Laroche began by asking the victim if she worries about what happened between them.
Laroche asks 'Do you think about it?'
The victim replies, ‘I do yes, I worry because I know it was completely inappropriate.’
‘We didn't get in trouble’ said Laroche.
The female agrees and Laroche admits, ‘I mean not so, so inappropriate, with the minute we did it, that was the dumbest thing we could have ever done."
The female admits the alleged incident is why she never became an officer.
Laroche said he was ‘in a bad place in that department and prior to working in that department nothing like that would have ever crossed his mind."
He continues, "You were a teenager and I was stressed out and stupid beyond belief."
The victim said, "I remember just sitting there and I’m like the age of consent is 16 and I was like what’s the big deal?
Laroche admits to the victim, "You could royally get back at me if you want."
Laroche was more than four years the victims senior. He’s out on bail, and told the judge he will clean out his office in Canterbury.
The Canterbury Board of Selectmen granted his request for administrative leave.
A special meeting by the board of selectmen is being held Wednesday to determine his future with the police force.
