A senior rugby player at the University of Maine at Farmington has been indicted by a Franklin County grand jury on a charge of gross sexual assault.

Frank Makuch, 23, of Storrs, Connecticut, and a current resident of Farmington, knew the woman whom he allegedly assaulted, said Detective Marc Bowering, of the Farmington Police Department. The woman is described only as being over the age of 18 and having made the report to police.

The crime is a class A felony punishable by up to 30 years in prison and a fine of up to $50,000.

Makuch was arrested on the charge last month. Shortly afterward, Walter Hanstein, the rugby team coach, who also said he would represent Makuch in court, withdrew as Makuch’s lawyer.

The University of Maine Farmington Rugby Football Club is a New England Rugby Football Union Division III club team.

Makuch was one of 38 people indicted recently by the Franklin County grand jury. An indictment is not a finding of guilt, but is an indicator that enough evidence is present to proceed with a trial.

Also indicted were a Wilton trio who were charged in February with sexual offenses against a child.

Anna LaRochelle, 24, Tami L. Ouellette, 42, and Jamie C. Ouellette, 37, all of Wilton, were indicted on charges of unlawful contact and visual sexual aggression against a child. Jamie Ouellette also was indicted on a charge of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.

The arrests of the three came after an investigation and search of their Cemetery Road home, Franklin County Sheriff Scott Nichols said at the time.
