Scarborough man charged in decade-old case

SCARBOROUGH — A five-month investigation into an alleged decade-old offense has resulted in two charges against a Scarborough man.

Gorham Police Detective Sgt. Dana Thompson said David Dougherty, 45, turned himself in to police around 3:45 p.m. Monday. Dougherty was charged with two counts of Class C unlawful sexual contact for alleged incidents at Wassamski Springs Campground in the summer of 2002.

Thompson said the male victim was not yet 12 at the time of the alleged incidents and reported them to police last April.

Dougherty was taken to Cumberland County Jail in Portland and released on $2,500 bail with conditions prohibiting contact with the victim and allowing random searches for sexually explicit materials. He is scheduled to appear in Cumberland County Unified Criminal Docket in Portland on Nov. 14.
