AUGUSTA — A judge set bail Monday for three men who were brought to the Kennebec County jail over the weekend to face separate felony charges.

David Alan Bradley, 63, of Florida, pleaded not guilty Monday to charges of theft by deception in an amount greater than $10,000. He was indicted on the charges in June 2013.

The offense allegedly occurred between Sept. 1, 2010, and June 30, 2011, in Kennebec County.

The indictment says Bradley created a false impression that he was providing reimbursable services to MaineCare recipients and was entitled to reimbursement from MaineCare.

Bradley, who previously practiced in Portland, was extradited from Florida, apparently after being held there for 70 days, to face the charge in Kennebec County.

According to court records, Bradley was denied a renewal of his psychologist’s license in Maine in 2009, based on Maine Board of Examiners of Psychologists finding that he “committed multiple professional and ethical violations,” and that denial was upheld in November 2011 by a superior court justice.

Assistant Attorney General Valerie Wright asked the judge on Monday to hold Bradley on $5,000 bail rather than the $2,000 initially sought in the warrant on the indictment. She said Bradley had moved out of Maine and was now living in Florida. Justice Robert Mullen agreed.

Bradley also faces a charge of failure to pay a fine on a separate operating under the influence conviction in Cumberland County.

Raymond Girouard, 56, of Hallowell was arrested Sunday on Water Street, Hallowell, and charged with aggravated criminal operating under the influence in connection with an April crash in Belgrade that left his passenger seriously injured.

He was released from jail on unsecured bail following Monday’s hearing.

According to an affidavit by Maine State Trooper Jesse Duda, the single-vehicle crash occurred just before 12:45 a.m. April 6 on Route 27. Duda said it appeared that Girouard lost control of his Honda Accord, crossed the center line and struck the guard rail on the other side of the road with the passenger side of the vehicle. Duda said a blood sample was taken from Girouard at Inland Hospital in Waterville, where he was taken for treatment following the crash, and the result was a .10 blood alcohol content. The legal limit for those 21 and older in Maine is .08.

The passenger was treated at Maine Medical Center in Portand for fractures to her legs and back.

Duda sought an arrest warrant July 16, saying in the affidavit that he believed “Girouard is aware that the police are actively looking for him and is intentionally avoiding police contact.”

A Vassalboro man was arrested Sunday after an indictment from March charging him with aggravated trafficking in cocaine on Jan. 31, 2013, in Fairfield.

Lawrence K. Sousa Jr., 48, told the judge he was stopped for speeding when police found that arrest warrant from the indictment.

A judge on Monday set bail at $5,000 cash on the indictment.
