Warden Charged With Assault At Concert Faces More Charges

A Maine game warden who was charged with assaulting a concertgoer is facing additional charges of unlawful sexual touching and disorderly conduct.

The Bangor Daily News reports 41-year-old Jeremy Judd of Mechanic Falls was attending a concert on July 18 at Darling's Waterfront Pavilion when the crimes are alleged to have occurred. Judd's on paid administrative leave while Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife conducts an internal investigation.

Judd has been with the Maine Warden Service for more than 15 years. Wildlife department Commissioner Judy Camuso says she's "deeply concerned" about the charges.

Judd's scheduled for arraignment Aug. 21 in Bangor. His attorney is Walter McKee of Augusta. McKee says Judd "has a very different view about what happened that night," and will plead not guilty to the charges.
