Maine Man Arrested For Taking Photos of Boy in Restroom
A registered sex offender in Maine has been arrested again – this time for taking photos of a young boy in a public restroom.
State Troopers, members of the State Police Computer Crimes Unit and Newport Police arrested 46-year-old Marc Alberi at his home in Newport on Monday, according to Public Safety Department spokesman Steve McCausland.
Investigators say Alberi used his cell phone camera to take photos of an 11-year-old boy at the urinal at the Wal-Mart in Palmyra on Sunday. The boy reported the incident and with the assistance of the store’s security team, Alberi was identified and interviewed by troopers later in the day. His cell phone and laptop were seized and analyzed by the computer crimes unit.
Alberi was arrested Monday at his home and taken to the Penobscot County Jail. He is charged with possessing sexually explicit material of a child under the age of 12, a Class C felony.
In 1998, Alberi was convicted of unlawful sexual contact and sentenced to two years in jail. He has a total of eight sex-related convictions and is required to register with the Maine Sex Offender Registry for the rest of his life
