A former special education teacher has pleaded not guilty to federal child pornography charges.
27-year old Patrik Arsenault of Norridgewock faces six federal child pornography charges as well as state charges.
He’s accused of molesting two young boys and taking videos of it.
The boys are brothers, both are autistic, prosecutors say they were 6 and 7 at the time of the crimes.
Court documents say Arsenault told police he was trading child porn online.
He was about to begin working at an elementary school in Farmington when he was arrested in August.
