BANGOR — A 27-year-old Bangor woman has pleaded guilty to charges she sexually assaulted a man and poured scalding water on his back, severely burning him.

Laura Smith has been held on $50,000 bail since her December arrest on elevated aggravated and gross sexual assault charges.

Court documents say the incident happened after a night of heavy drinking. The 43-year-old victim told police that he had passed out at a party on Nov. 28 and woke up with severe burns on his back and a perforated bowel. He was hospitalized for more than a month.

The Bangor Daily News says Smith later turned herself in to police and admitted she assaulted the man. No sentencing date has been set.
