2. In the second day of the trial of a former Kennebunk High School health teacher facing 14 counts of sexual assault, sexual abuse of a minor, and misconduct, the alleged victim took the stand. During the cross-examination Tuesday morning, the boy, now 19-years-old, said he lied and denied any sexual or inappropriate contact with Jill Lamontagne when asked about it by school officials during an initial investigation in March 2017. No charges were filed at the time and the boy said the relationship continued. A text message was also brought before the jury by Kennebunk Police Detective Steve Borst, a lead investigator on the case. The text was allegedly sent to the boy by Lamontagne and contained a screenshot of a song by country artist Chris Young entitled “Who I Am With You,” accompanied by a text saying, “Listen to the words.” (NewsCenterMaine)
