A judge in Augusta has handed a 29-month prison sentence to a door-to-door magazine salesman from California for assaulting women in their homes.
A prosecutor said the victims felt violated when 22-year-old Brandon Street forced hugs and kisses on them and refused to leave when asked.
The victims wrote to the judge and one addressed the court yesterday just prior to Street’s sentencing.
The offenses, all misdemeanors, occurred over a two-day period last June in Augusta and Waterville and included four counts of assault and two acts of criminal trespass. Superior Court Justice
John Nivison imposed consecutive sentences on all but one of the offenses.
