A teacher at the Waldo County Technical Center accused of having sex with a student faces another charge Wednesday.

The Penobscot County Grand Jury indicted 46-year-old Michael Gagnon of Winslow on a second count of gross sexual assault.

Gagnon pleaded not guilty to the same charge in Waldo County last month.

The Penobscot County District Attorney says this new charge is for a separate incident with the same victim.

Police believe Gagnon molested a 17-year-old student when he took her on “test drives” of vehicles other students were working on.

Gagnon was suspended from the tech center, as well as a school in Thorndike where he coached softball.
