Rockland — Five people were charged by indictments Monday by a Knox County grand jury that met for a day.

Andrew Maurice Langley, 21, from the Maine State Prison in Warren was indicted Oct. 2 for Class A aggravated assault on Feb. 20, 2017, in Warren. He is charged with punching another prisoner who suffered a broken jaw. Langley is serving a seven-year prison sentence for aggravated assault in Bangor in 2016. In that instance, he was charged with stabbing a man during a fight in downtown Bangor.

Daniel Robert Chamberland, 28, from the Maine State Prison in Warren was indicted for felony assault on May 17, 2016, in Warren. The charge is a felony because Chamberland has two prior criminal threatening convictions.

Pomphile A. Fontaine, 33, Hope, Class C felony domestic violence assault on May 7 in Hope; Class B tampering with a victim on May 8; and domestic violence assault on Dec. 4, 2015, in Hope. The people named as victims in the indictments were teens.

Wesley Shane Williams, 27, St. George, three counts of Class B assault on an officer on May 26 in Rockland. The victims are three corrections officers, according to the indictment. Williams has three prior domestic violence assault convictions since 2014, two in Florida and one in Knox County.

Also indicted was Scott D. Knowlton, 50, of Carthage, for Class B negotiating a worthless instrument, on Jan. 11 in Friendship when he allegedly issued a check for $27,009 to New Moon Fisheries knowing it would not be honored at TD Bank.
