Couple indicted in sexual assault of 7-year-old boy

BANGOR, Maine — A local couple facing sex charges involving a 7-year-old boy were indicted Wednesday by the Penobscot County grand jury.

Katie Dube, 27, of Glenburn and Terrence A. Pinkham, 27, of Bangor were indicted on five counts of gross sexual contact and two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor. The victim is related to one of the adults, according to the Penobscot County district attorney’s office.

They are scheduled to be arraigned July 5 at the Penobscot Judicial Center.

The pair were arrested in Brewer earlier this month by local police.

Dube and Pinkham remained Wednesday at the Penobscot County Jail unable to make bail. Her bail was set at $50,000 cash while his was set at $100,000.

Police began an investigation into the couple after an electronic photo of a sexual assault involving a child was sent to Brewer police, according to a previously published report.

Brewer police Detective Sgt. Jay Munson said earlier this month that the couple “created child porn” but did not distribute images over the Internet. If they had, federal charges most likely would have been filed against Dube and Pinkham.

If convicted, both face up to 30 years in prison and a fine of up to $50,000 on the sexual assault charges. They face up to 10 years in prison and fines of up to $20,000 on the sexual exploitation charges.
