Dead inmate at Kennebec County jail identified as Skowhegan man

Moises Pujols

AUGUSTA — An inmate found dead early Tuesday morning was identified by the Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office as Moises Pujols, 34, of Skowhegan.

“The cause of death is still under investigation pending completed reports from the Medical Examiner’s Office,” according to a news release issued Wednesday by that agency.

Moises Radhame Pujols was on probation through the department’s Skowhegan probation office, according to the state’s Department of Corrections website.

Pujols had been on probation after being convicted in June 2016 of a felony-level domestic violence assault charge.

The sentence was four years in prison, with Pujols ordered to serve an initial 18 months behind bars and the remainder suspended while he spent two years on probation. According to the same website, he would have been released from probation in November 2019.

Pujols had prior convictions for domestic violence and in January 2015, he was convicted of unlawful furnishing of scheduled drugs that occurred Aug. 28, 2013, in Augusta.
