Former police lieutenant found guilty of sex assault

September 20, 2018

PARIS, Maine (AP) — A jury had found a former Maine police lieutenant guilty of raping a woman.

The Sun Journal reports the jury found 51-year-old Shayne White guilty of felony gross sexual assault Tuesday after a two-day trial.

White was arrested in June 2017 in connection with the assault in Bethel.

He faces up to 30 years in prison, and a clerk says he is free on bail pending sentencing.

White previously served as a lieutenant with the Bethel Police Department, and he won a $27,000 settlement over overtime pay in 2008.

The department was disbanded in 2010 after voters decided to contract the Oxford County Sheriff’s Office instead.

White’s lawyer didn’t return a call seeking comment Thursday.
