A Newmarket man is facing years in prison after prosecutors say he sexually assaulted a disabled teenager multiple times.

Joshua Gilbert, 42, has been indicted by a grand jury at Rockingham County Superior Court.

Prosecutors say the assaults happened between April of 2012 and June of 2017. They allegedly started when the child was 14 years old.

Gilbert is expected to be arraigned on Sept. 17.
