ROCKLAND — A 44-year-old Maine man in jail on sexual assault and other charges is facing a new charge he tried to get the alleged victim to not testify or give false testimony against him.

Bradley Lemay, of Augusta, has been in the Knox County Jail since June for allegedly raping a woman at knifepoint in her Camden home. Lemay was released from prison in February after serving 21 years following a rape conviction in 1989.

The Bangor Daily News says Lemay is now charged with tampering with a victim for allegedly writing a letter from jail to his brother asking him to either pay or threaten the victim so she either wouldn’t testify or would testify falsely.

Camden police say the brother, who lives in southern Maine, instead contacted police.
