PRESQUE ISLE — A Presque Isle man who worked as a referee at Aroostook County high school basketball games has been charged with sending sexually explicit photos to students he met while officiating.
The sheriff’s office says 21-year-old Andrew Legassie has been charged with two counts of misdemeanor indecent conduct.
Police started investigating after parents and school officials told them a high school girl had received sexually explicit images from someone.
Police allege Legassie sent Facebook friend requests to high school students he met at games. He allegedly engaged them in increasingly inappropriate Facebook conversations that progressed to him sending inappropriate pictures of himself.
He is scheduled to appear in Fort Kent District Court on April 7. Police have seized his phone and it was not clear if he had a lawyer.
