ROCKLAND — A Maine State Prison corrections officer remains free on bail after being charged with sexually assaulting another employee.

Bo Radic, 31, of Friendship, made his initial appearance Monday, Aug. 8 in the Knox County court in Rockland on one count of Class A gross sexual assault. Judge Geoffrey Rushlau set bail at $1,000 cash, ordered that Radic sign a Maine pretrial contract, and that he surrender his passport. He also is prohibited from having any contact with the alleged victim.

Radic had originally been issued a summons for the offense on July 7 by Knox County Sheriff’s Office Detective Justin Twitchell.

No plea was entered at the hearing since the case has not yet been presented to a grand jury for its determination of whether to issue an indictment.

The complaint filed in court by the district attorney’s office alleges that the sexual assault occurred June 22 in Friendship. An affidavit filed by the Sheriff’s Office states that the victim told the detective that she worked with Radic at the prison and the two had a relationship.

On the night of the incident, the two had started having consensual sex when she told him to stop and he refused, and forcibly sexually assaulted her, the woman stated to the detective, according to the affidavit.

Radic acknowledged that had a consensual sexual relationship but denied her version of the June 22 incident. He then said he needed to speak with an attorney before saying anything else, according to the affidavit. He was then issued the summons.

Radic is represented by attorney Walter McKee.
