AUGUSTA, Maine — A former fire captain in Augusta, Maine says he’s not guilty of molesting a teenaged girl.
Thirty-nine-year-old Robert G. MacMaster, who’s charged with sexually abusing the girl over a four-year period ending last April, pleaded not guilty Wednesday in an arraignment in Kennebec County Superior Court. He’s charged with four counts of sexual abuse of a minor and one count of gross sexual assault.
The Morning Sentinel reports that he was freed on $2,000 bail pending an April 5 court hearing.
MacMaster resigned in 2009 after being put on administrative leave amid allegations he stole $3,565 from the Augusta Uniformed Firefighters Association. He later pleaded guilty in that case.
