Oakland man accused of molesting child for seven years formally charged

OAKLAND, Maine (WABI) - An Oakland man accused of sexually molesting a child for seven years has been formally charged with the crime.

65-year-old Raymond Brickett was indicted last week by a Somerset County grand jury on seven counts of gross sexual assault and eight counts of unlawful sexual contact.

Police were called on Christmas day by a person who's now a young adult.

The person said Brickett molested them, beginning in 2002 at the age of seven.

Brickett was arrested about a week later.
