BRUNSWICK, Maine — The Sagadahoc County Sheriff’s Department has arrested a registered sex offender for additional sex crimes against children which allegedly happened in 2000.

Leslie Richard Grant, also known as Levi Grant, 46, of 4½ Dunning Street in Brunswick, was arrested Monday and charged with Class A gross sexual assault of a child under the age of 14. According to a press release from Sagadahoc County Sheriff Joel Merry, an investigation showed that Grant sexually abused children at a Bowdoinham residence in 2000. Grant was arrested after an arrest warrant was issued by the Sagadahoc County District Attorney’s Office.

Grant was convicted of a similar incident in Lisbon in 2004, according to the press release, and is listed on the Maine Sex Offender Registry as a 10-year registrant. Merry said the investigation into Grant is ongoing and that further charges may be pending in relation to Grant’s contact with other victims in other communities.

Grant is being held on $10,000 bail at Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset.
