Former teacher from Monmouth no longer charged with child porn

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.

former teacher

Who apologizes to this man now. He has no job, ruined his reputation probably ruined his family. All you do gooders are so fast to go after someone, you don't even think beforehand. The State should be made to pay for this man's suffering. He probably has more evidence of than you people ever had in the first place. Always jumping at a conclusion.
