AUGUSTA — Two area men were indicted on sexual assault charges, and two others on charges of possessing sexually explicit images of children, in unrelated cases taken up recently by a Kennebec County grand jury.

Thomas M. Muradian, 73, of Winslow, was indicted on a Class A charge of gross sexual assault for allegedly engaging in a sexual act with a child under the age of 12 in Winslow, between Jan. 12, 2007, and Jan. 12, 2012. The felony charge is punishable by a minimum of 20 years in prison.

Muradian was also indicted on charges of unlawful sexual contact and visual sexual aggression against a child, in the same time period, also in Winslow and involving the same alleged victim. The visual sexual aggression against a child charge alleges he exposed himself to a minor.

And he was indicted on a charge of attempted unlawful sexual contact, involving a different alleged victim, between April 28, 2020, and May 5, 2020, also in Winslow.

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

In an unrelated case, Dwayne M. Armsworthy, 47, of Augusta, was indicted on a Class C charge of gross sexual assault against a woman, Sept. 4, 2019, in Augusta.

And two men, both in unrelated cases, were indicted on multiple counts each of possession of sexually explicit materials, of children younger than 12.

Kenneth A. Penney, 54, of Sidney, was indicted on four counts of possession of sexually explicit materials, each in Sidney, on Oct. 1, 2020.

And Peter N. Davidson, 58, of Litchfield, was indicted on five counts of possession of sexually explicit materials, each in Litchfield, on June 2, 2020.
