BANGOR, Maine — A former special education teacher in Wayne has pleaded guilty to charges of making video recordings of the sexual exploitation of young boys.

The Kennebec Journal (http://bit.ly/1xR2NM2 ) reports that Patrik Ian Arsenault, of Norridgewock, pleaded guilty Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Bangor to three counts of production of child pornography and one count each of transportation, receipt and possession of child pornography.

The 27-year-old Arsenault worked for two years at the Wayne Regional Autism Program based at Wayne Elementary School.

According to court documents, his victims were not his students, but family friends. The boys were 6 and 7 years old at the time of the offenses last summer.

He will be sentenced at a later date.

He also faces state charges.
