    New Hampshire Lawmaker Says He's Being Extorted
    The New Hampshire Statehouse.

    A New Hampshire state lawmaker accused of assault in a civil lawsuit in California says he's the victim of an extortion attempt.

    State Rep. Frank Sapareto was sued by Jonathan Carter of Simi Valley. Carter said he and Sapareto were business partners in the making of an adult film that Sapareto produced and appeared in.

    Carter said Sapareto was upset with how the filming went and hit him.

    Sapareto said Monday he never assaulted Carter and only worked with him to produce tourism promotion films. He says Carter later called him to demand money.

    Carter's attorney says his client has hours of footage from the adult film featuring Sapareto.

    Police investigated the incident but no charges were brought. In a police report, authorities said Sapareto told them he was involved in making an adult film. Sapareto said police misinterpreted comments he had made about Carter.
