Carroll Plantation man indicted in sexual assault of 11-year-old

BANGOR, Maine — A Carroll Plantation man was indicted Wednesday by the Penobscot County grand jury for sexually assaulting an 11-year-old boy.

Gerald Wakeling, 59, was indicted on charges of gross sexual assault, unlawful sexual contact and terrorizing.

An arraignment date has not been set.

Carroll Plantation is located in northeastern Penobscot County and borders Washington County.

Wakeling allegedly invited the boy to his home on July 1, 2010, to play video games, then assaulted him. Wakeling also threatened to kill the boy and his family if he told anyone about the attack, Penobscot County District Attorney R. Christopher Almy said Wednesday.

If convicted, Wakeling faces up to 30 years in prison and a fine of up to

$50,000 on the most serious charge, gross sexual assault.

In an unrelated case, Irene Chase, 59, of Dover-Foxcroft was indicted on charges related to her failure to pay sales taxes, withholding taxes and income taxes to the state of Maine.

Although the alleged crime was committed in Piscataquis County, the Maine Attorney General’s Office presented the case to the grand jury in Penobscot County, which convenes once a month. The Piscataquis County grand jury meets several times a year.

Chase was indicted on two counts of theft by misapplication, two counts of failure to collect, account for, or pay over tax, two counts of failure to pay income tax and two counts of failure to make and file Maine income tax returns.

Her arraignment date has not been set.

Chase was in charge of collecting sales taxes and withholding taxes from employees’ paychecks at two Subway restaurants in Piscataquis County, according to Assistant Attorney General Gregg Bernstein, who is prosecuting the case. Chase used the money she should have sent to the state for personal expenses, he said Wednesday.

Bernstein declined to say whether Chase owned or managed the restaurants.

Chase also failed to file or pay Maine income taxes in 2008 and 2009, according to Bernstein.
