The Rockingham County Attorney's Office made the announcement.

Police documents say Schleien approached the teen at an Exeter cafe July 2016 and struck up a conversation about politics.

Schleien was charged in relation to a July 2016 incident allegedly involving a 16-year-old girl, the release said.

New Hampshire state Representative Eric Schleien has been charged with sexual assault of a minor, Rockingham County Attorney Patricia Conway announced Friday.

A New Hampshire lawmaker has been accused of sexually and physically assaulting a 16-year-old girl who told police she agreed to meet him to learn more about politics.


When they got in his auto, Schleien locked the doors, grabbed her hand and started kissing and sucking on her fingers, she told police.

Schleien's attorney told authorities that his client denies any unwanted sexual contact.

Schleien, a 29-year-old Republican from Hudson, is in his second two-year term in the House of Representatives.

House Speaker Shawn Jasper issued a statement Friday morning saying he is taking the situation "very seriously".

Schleien did not return a call for comment Friday.
