LISBON — A convicted sex offender has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for sexually assaulting a child under age 14 last year.

Christopher Conner, 37, pleaded guilty Thursday in Androscoggin County Superior Court in Auburn to felony gross sexual assault. The plea agreement included a prison sentence of 12 years followed by 10 years of supervised release.

Lisbon police arrested Conner on Aug. 30, 2018.

According to court documents, Conner must abide by several conditions upon his release, including no contact with anyone under age 16 without the permission of his probation officer or a sex offender treatment provider.

He must complete a sex offender treatment program, undergo mental health evaluation, and live in an area supervised by a sex offender specialist. He has to comply with the Maine Sex Offender Registry Act.

Conner is also barred from possessing or using a computer without prior written approval of his probation officer. He is also prohibited from viewing, listening to or possession pornographic or sexually explicit material.

According to Lisbon police, Conner was convicted in 2002 of unlawful sexual contact involving a 13-year-old child. That conviction elevated the charge in the Lisbon case to a Class A felony, which is punishable by up to 30 years in prison and a fine of up to $50,000.
