NASHUA — A former Nashua Children's Home employee accused of raping a teen resident last year will plead guilty.
Jury selection in the case against Jordan Dorsey, 32 formerly of Lawrence, Mass., was cancelled Monday, the Union Leader reported. Instead, a plea and sentencing hearing has been scheduled for Nov. 17.
Dorsey was accused of raping a 16-year-old at the Nashua Children's Home located at 86 Concord Street in June of 2015. He was indicted on one count of felonious sexual assault and one count endangering the welfare of a child since he violated his duty of care when he engaged in sexual contact with the female resident.
Dorsey was facing up to 15 years in prison if found guilty.
He was terminated from the Nashua Children's Home when authorities began investigating the allegations, police told the UL.
Dorsey is free on bail and is prohibited from having any contact with the victim and the Nashua Children's Home; he is now living in North Carolina.
The 16-year-old victim is currently undergoing counseling associated with the alleged sexual assault, according to state court records.
