A 23-year old Dixmont man, formerly from Belgrade, has been sentenced for sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl, this after supplying her with alcohol.

According to the AP and centralmaine.com, Travis Gerrier, was sentenced to seven years in prison, (10/31) after previously entering multiple conditional guilty pleas this past summer.

Gerrier’s attorney told centralmaine.com that he has... "cognitive disabilities and said various evaluators found that he had the mind of an 11- or 12-year-old himself."

He will be appealing a previous competency ruling by the Maine Supreme Judicial Court.
