Arraignment waived for Maine man accused of sexually assaulting young girl

By Liz Markhlevskaya, Foster's Daily Democrat

ROCHESTER, N.H. — A Maine man charged with sexually assaulting a young girl in Rochester is free on personal recognizance bail after he waived arraignment scheduled for Wednesday.

Christopher Lunny, 42, of Springvale, Maine, is accused of sexually assaulting a girl over a period of four years, while the victim was between the ages of 5 and 9. The assaults occurred in Rochester between August 2004 and August 2008, according to grand jury indictments issued at Strafford County Superior Court last month.

Lunny is facing five counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault. Because of the young age of the alleged victim, the maximum penalty of each charge has been enhanced. If convicted, Lunny could be sentenced to 10 to 30 years in prison for each charge.

Lunny is currently free on $10,000 personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to appear at Strafford County Superior Court for a dispositional conference on Aug. 12.
