Inmate charged with raping girl
NASHUA A state prison inmate is charged with raping and sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl in Hudson 23 years ago. John Little, 63, was indicted on nine counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault this week in Hillsborough County Superior Court. The charges allege that he assaulted the girl, then 13, during the winter of 1981 in Hudson. Each charge carries up to 7½ to 15 years in prison. Neither prosecutors nor prison officials could be reached for comment Thursday afternoon, so it’s not clear why Little is currently in prison.
