AUGUSTA — Testimony continued on day three of Jared Jandreau’s trial in Kennebec County.
He’s charged with more than 17 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, five counts of unlawful sexual contact, and one count of solicitation for gross sexual assault with a victim under 14.
Assistant Attorney General Paul Rucha questioned Jandreau’s ex-girlfriend, Jessica Cox, about photos she admitted sending to him and asked if the alleged victim was in the room when the photos were taken. Cox said the child was there and was one of the people in the picture but Jandreau never met her.
The defense attorneys said there was not enough evidence to show Jandreau persuaded Cox to send explicit images of the child to him. The prosecution played an audio recording from Jan. 18, 2018, when a Maine State Police detective executed a search warrant at Jandreau’s home.
The detective said the recording shows Jandreau had no photos of child pornography on his phone, in his home, or on his laptop.
Closing statements are expected Thursday before the case goes to the jury.
