Rockland man pleads guilty to sex assault
Rockland — A 52-year-old Rockland man was sentenced to 32 months in prison after he admitted to sexually assaulting a woman in December 2012.
David Achorn was convicted of sexual abuse of a minor in Belfast in 2003 and was sentenced to five years in prison with all but two years suspended and was subject to four years on probation.
Achorn pleaded guilty to violating his probation Sept. 20 in Knox County Superior Court.
Achorn was charged with gross sexual assault after he raped a woman at his room on Main Street in Rockland while she was impaired on prescription drugs and alcohol, according to an affidavit in Knox County Superior Court.
Police were initially called to the Brunswick rooms in Rockland where Achorn was assaulted by another man upset that Achorn had taken advantage of the female victim.
Achorn said the sexual acts were consensual and said the victim initiated it. But the victim, while at the hospital, told police she did not remember anything because of the effect of her prescription medication mixed with alcohol.
The victim also sustained bruises to her face.
