Former police officer gets 10 years for molesting young girl

The Associated Press

FARMINGTON, Maine — A Westbrook man who served briefly as a police officer has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for sexually molesting a young girl.

Steven Goozey was also sentenced on Monday to six years of probation upon release and ordered to register as a sex offender.

Goozey, 39, pleaded guilty to 10 counts of unlawful sexual contact in October. Prosecutors say he molested the girl multiple times over a four-year period from 2006 to 2010 when she was under 12 years old.

Goozey worked for the Carrabassett Valley Police Department for three months in 2010 but was fired for unrelated reasons.

The Sun Journal reports that his defense attorney told the judge that Goozey knows what he did was wrong.
