FARMINGTON, Maine — A former Maine police officer is facing 10 felony charges that he had sexual contact with a Franklin County girl under age 12.

Thirty-nine-year-old Steve Goozey of Coplin Planation was indicted Thursday on the charges that stem from the alleged contact with the girl that occurred between June 2006 and May 2010.

Goozey worked for the Carrabassett Valley Police Department for about three months in 2010.

Chief Scott Nichols told the Sun Journal of Lewiston that Goozey was let go because of unrelated circumstances.

Goozey was first arrested in March.
