AUGUSTA, Maine — A former middle school teacher is no longer facing child pornography charges.
But prosecutors say that if they receive more evidence they could still present the case against Christopher Brown, 55, of Monmouth to a grand jury.
Brown appeared Tuesday in Kennebec County Superior Court. After the judge determined no complaint had been filed she vacated his bail and Brown left the court.
District Attorney Evert Fowle says the lack of a complaint Tuesday has no bearing on whether charges will be filed in the future.
But Brown’s attorney, Michael Whipple, told the Kennebec Journal the move reflects his position that there was no criminal conduct.
Brown was arrested in June after a school official reported students found photos on a classroom computer of girls on the school playground.
