Ex-Maine Prosecutor Faces Retrial on Porn Charges
01/04/2013 10:28 AM ET  

The Kennebec Journal reports that a new criminal contempt charge was filed against James Cameron on Wednesday based on his flight from Maine while he was free on bail.

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) _ A former state prosecutor convicted of child pornography charges faces a retrial next month on six convictions dismissed by an appeals court.

The same court upheld James Cameron's convictions on seven other child pornography charges.

The Kennebec Journal reports that a new criminal contempt charge was filed against Cameron on Wednesday based on his flight from Maine while he was free on bail. He is scheduled to be in U.S. District Court in Portland on Tuesday.

The 50-year-old Cameron disappeared in November after the appeals court upheld his convictions. He was missing for about three weeks before being found in Albuquerque, N.M., in early December.

Cameron, who was once Maine's top drug prosecutor, was convicted of 13 counts of child pornography in 2010.
