LIMESTONE, Maine — A Limestone man who was indicted by the Aroostook County grand jury earlier this month on multiple sex charges will make his initial appearance in court next month.

Mark Fisher, 43, was indicted on two counts of gross sexual assault and two counts of unlawful sexual contact.

Few details were available because of the nature of the case, but Aroostook County District Attorney Todd Collins said Thursday that the abuse involved one child and took place from April 2008 to approximately January 2011. Fisher was the “parent, step-parent, foster parent, guardian or other similar person responsible for the long-term general care and welfare” of the victim, according to the indictment.

Collins said the child was under 14 years old when the abuse occurred.

Fisher had been employed as a custodian at the Maine School of Science and Mathematics in Limestone, according to Collins. The victim, identified as “Child A,” was not an MSSM student.

An official with MSSM said Thursday that he could not comment on the status of Fisher’s employment at the magnet school. He said that the facility was aware of the allegations. Fisher was not listed as an employee on the MSSM website. He also is no longer allowed to be in contact with children as a condition of his bail.

The case was investigated by Maine State Police Detective Adam Stoutamyer, who said Thursday that he could not immediately comment on the case.

Collins said Fisher had not been processed before the case was presented to the grand jury. He was arrested after a warrant was issued on May 10.

The district attorney said Fisher was released on a $10,000 unsecured bond with numerous conditions, including no contact with the victim or other children. He also must appear in court when scheduled.

He will appear in Aroostook County Superior Court in Caribou next month.
