Maine sex offender faces more charges

Police say the charges relate to alleged contact with nine children.

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA — A Prentiss Plantation man on Maine’s sex offender registry has been indicted on 14 more charges.

Clinton police say 49-year-old Timothy Hayes was indicted last week on charges including gross sexual assault on a person younger than 12, violation of conditions of release, violation of the Sex Offender Registry Act, and multiple counts of prohibited contact with a minor.

Police tell WABI-TV that the charges relate to alleged contact with nine children, some in so-called “safe zones,” including playgrounds and athletic fields.

Hayes was indicted earlier this month for sexually abusing an 8-year-old boy.

Authorities say these latest charges are all related.

Hayes is being held and it was not clear if he had a lawyer.
