A former Norridgewock man, who worked as a special education teacher, pleaded guilty Tuesday to sexual exploitation of a minor and child pornography charges.

27-year-old Patrik Arsenault changed his plea in federal court in Bangor.

Court documents say last summer he sexually abused three boys and took pictures and videos of the abuse.

Two of the victims were brothers at a camp in Belgrade and Arsenault shared images of their abuse on-line.

Arsenault was about to begin working at an elementary school in Farmington when he was arrested last August.

He faces at least 15 years in prison.

    I wish he would get LIFE! awful! Glad he was caught & deserves to serve his life, so these sweet children and their families can begin to heal!

      So sad…. but a Life sentence so we ALL have to support this parasite with 3 squares a day, cable TV, internet and better healthcare than most of us get? I’d suggest something MUCH more harsh, and a heck of a lot cheaper. In fact if it were one of my sons he hurt, allowing me to pull a switch would go a long way in my healing process!
