Former Priest Faces Sex Charges in Maine Court

February 17, 2017

A former priest was arraigned on nearly 30 sex charges in a York County courtroom Friday afternoon.

Ronald Paquin is charged with 29 counts of gross sexual misconduct.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Paquin is accused of assaulting two victims between 1985 and 1988 in Kennebunkport.

Paquin already served more than 10 years in prison for raping an altar boy while working as a priest near Boston.

Court documents show one of the victims was under the age of 14 when the alleged incidents happened and was "substantially impaired by drugs" at the time of the incident.
