Kennebec County grand jury indictments

Alleged Augusta stabber, accused teen-sex taper among recently indicted

STAFF REPORTS

AUGUSTA — A Waterville man who allegedly sent a video of himself having sex with an underage girl to the teen's mom, and an Augusta man who police say entered his estranged wife's apartment as she slept and stabbed her numerous times, were among those indicted this week by a Kennebec County grand jury.

Timothy Joseph Gaudette, 19, of Waterville, was indicted on three counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and one count each of gross sexual assault, dissemination of sexually explicit material and possession of sexually explicit materials.

David N. Delesline, 44, of Augusta, was indicted on charges of elevated aggravated assault and aggravated assault.

The indictments against Gaudette, Delesline, and nearly three dozen others, were handed up Thursday by a grand jury in Kennebec County Superior Court.

An indictment is not a determination of guilt, but it indicates there is enough evidence to proceed with formal charges and a trial.

Gaudette was arrested in May after allegedly recording himself having sex with a 17-year-old girl and sending the video and a sexually explicit photo to her mother. Gaudette reportedly took similar photos with a 13-year-old girl in his apartment in late March and kept the pictures on his phone, according to a court affidavit filed by Waterville Police Detective Alan Perkins.

Gaudette was arrested the same day a parent of the 13-year-old girl sought Waterville police help to find her after she visited Gaudette at the Sanger Avenue apartment, failed to return home as expected and did not answer her cellphone.

The girl, who was at Gaudette's apartment, told authorities Gaudette had used his phone to take photos of her topless and performing oral sex on him, according to Perkins.

The images and the video were found on Gaudette's cellphone, which was searched by the State Police Computer Crimes Unit after police got a warrant.

A laptop also seized from Gaudette's home had the 17-year-old girl's photos and the video. That girl and her mother had asked Waterville police in March to serve a temporary protection from abuse order on Gaudette.

The girl told police she had been Gaudette's girlfriend since the summer of 2012 and he took a video of her having sex with him early this year in her College Avenue apartment. He sent it to her mother in early March — after threatening to do so a number of times — because he was upset with the girl, police said.

Delesline reportedly entered his wife's York Street apartment after midnight last month while she slept and stabbed her 10 times before fleeing the apartment. Amy L. Delesline, 35, said she went to her bedroom door after she heard something that sounded like a window opening from the entryway of the apartment, according to a court affidavit filed by Augusta Police Detective Christopher Blodgett.

The couple is married, but in the process of getting a divorce, according to police.

David Delesline was standing with his right hand behind his back when his wife found him. He began stabbing her and continued when Amy Delesline fell to her knees, Blodgett wrote. Amy Delesline said she pleaded for her life, and her husband ran from the apartment out the front door.

She was flown to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston where she was treated and released a few days later.

Delesline's two sons were in the apartment at the time of the stabbing, according to police.

David Delesline was arrested after three days on the run.

The following people also were indicted this week:

• Gerald H. Arsenault Jr., 38, of Vassalboro, criminal use of explosives, June 28, 2012, in Vassalboro.
