AUGUSTA, Maine — A Sidney man whose residence was raided in April in a sex-trafficking sting is facing additional charges, according to officials.

Frederick Horne Sr., 46, is facing three charges of sex trafficking and one count apiece of unlawful possession of oxycodone and marijuana trafficking, Kennebec County District Attorney Maeghan Maloney said Friday.

Horne could spend up to five years behind bars on the oxycodone charge if convicted. The other four charges are Class D misdemeanors punishable by up to a year in jail.

Maloney said Horne’s next court appearance is scheduled for July 22. She said the additional four charges were brought against Horne, who had originally faced one sex trafficking count after the April 10 raid, on Wednesday.

Horne and his son, Frederick Horne Jr., 19, had been charged in April for running an escort service known as Adam and Eve at a West River Road residence.

The Hornes were two of three people charged in separate sex trafficking raids in Kennebec County in April, according to BDN archives.

Also charged was 51-year old Gretchen Patrick of Augusta, who operated an escort service known as Sarah’s Place from a Litchfield residence. Police have said the businesses are not related.
