According to WGME 13, a 64-year-old Maine man was taken into custody this week on multiple charges of gross sexual assault.

Reports indicate that, Edwin Davis of Chester, was arrested Thursday by Maine State Police after a 13-year-old-girl told a school counselor about the ongoing abuse. By law, that councilor is required to notify the proper officials.

The investigation into the matter began on March 8th after a school counselor notified the principal that a girl had said she was being sexually abused and it had been going on for multiple years. The principal notified officials and the investigation began, according to WGME.

Davis was taken into custody on Thursday and charged with 3 counts of gross sexual assault. He's being held at the Penobscot County Jail on $25,000 bail or $50,000 in property according to WGME.

If Davis is found guilty of the charges, he could spend up to 30 years in prison and face fines of up to $50,000.
