AUGUSTA — Two men have been indicted in separate cases on multiples charges they possessed sexually explicit materials involving children younger than 12 years old.

A Kennebec County grand jury has indicted Brian P. Moreau, 52, of Augusta on eight counts related to sexually explicit materials, and Colin T. Curtis, 31, of Camden on 10 counts.

According to the indictment, Curtis allegedly transported, exhibited, purchased, processed, possessed or accessed images or material he knew or should have known depicted someone engaging in sexually explicit conduct. Curtis is accused of having committed the crimes in Augusta.

Six of the counts alleged a child younger than 12 years old was involved, while the other four counts allege the victim in those instances was younger than 16 years old.

Moreau’s charges allege the same crime, with all eight alleged to have occurred Sept. 30, 2019, in Augusta, with seven of the charges involving a victim younger than 12, and one involving a victim younger than 16.

An indictment is not a determination of guilt, but it indicates that there is enough evidence to proceed with formal charges and a trial.
