BANGOR, Maine — A Charleston man who spent more than two years in federal prison for possession of child pornography was indicted Wednesday by the Penobscot County grand jury on 10 counts of sexual abuse of a minor.

Carey E. Gonyer, 43, was charged in October with possession of sexually explicit material. He was not indicted Wednesday on that charge by the grand jury.

The charges involve one male victim who was 15 years old when the crimes allegedly took place, according to the Penobscot County District Attorney’s Office. The sexual abuse charges and the possession of pornography charge are related, Alice Clifford, assistant district attorney for Penobscot County, said after the grand jury handed up its indictments. She declined to say how they were related.

The pornography charge most likely has been turned over to federal prosecutors, but Gonyer has not yet been charged in U.S. District Court.

Gonyer is required to register as a sex offender because of his conviction in federal court in 2006.

He was on supervised release for that crime when some of the alleged abuse took place, according to Clifford.
