Arrest Made in Rape Case 

State Police brought 38-year old Derwin &quot:Tiger&quot: Springer, Junior, from Passadumkeag, to the Penobscot County Jail Friday morning.

Springer is accused of breaking into a Pleasant Street home on October 29th, and forcing the woman who lived there to have sex with him.

According to court documents, State Police caught up with Springer, after matching forensic evidence from the victim’s sex crimes kit, with his DNA.

Springer is charged with gross sexual assault and burglary.

District Attorney Chris Almy says Springer has a long history of criminal activity, that includes OUI, terrorizing and theft.

Springer is expected to make his first appearance in court early next week.
