The former police chief of Howland has been indicted by a grand jury.
72 year old Carl Smith of Eddington is charged with gross sexual assault and two counts of unlawful sexual contact.
Authorities say he molested twin 5-year old girls.
Smith was arrested in May after police learned he was staying at a motel in Wells.
He had retired as Howland's police chief in 1988 after serving 18 years as a police officer.
