DOVER, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire convicted sex offender known as “the UNH rapist” wants a judge to reduce his sentence because he completed two college courses.

Gary Fecteau has served more than 25 years on convictions for aggravated sex assault and burglary in 1987 at the University of New Hampshire and surrounding towns.

WMUR reports (https://bit.ly/1NXkhwa ) that Fecteau was in court Thursday seeking a sentence reduction under a new law that lets judges to give credit for certain education programs a convict completes.

Stafford Country objected to the reductions, saying Fecteau terrorized the UNH area for months, breaking into women’s homes and sexually assaulting them.

He was convicted of assaulting three women - two of them University of New Hampshire students.

The judge did not rule Thursday.
