Camden man pleads guilty to sex abuse charges
Rockland — A 26-year-old Camden man pleaded guilty Dec. 13 in Knox County Superior Court to committing two sex crimes against a teenager..
Addam L. Sheets was sentenced to three years in prison, will all but nine months suspended for one count of unlawful sexual contact and one count of sexual abuse of a minor for engaging in criminal sexual conduct with a minor female victim.
Sheet will be placed on two years of probation upon his release and will not be allowed contact with females less than 18 years old.
The victim, 15, was interviewed by Camden Police Department and described a sexual encounter that occurred in March with Sheets. She also said Sheets had told her not to tell anybody about it, according to court documents filed by Camden Police Detective Curt Andrick.
Articles of clothing were collected for evidence, and DNA analysis links Sheets to the crime, said the affidavit.
When Sheets was interviewed by police, he denied having sex with the victim, but admitted to kissing and groping her, said the report. In November, he pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Sheets is represented by Camden attorney Jeremy Pratt.
