BELFAST, Maine (WABI) – Wade Brayman, 65 of Liberty, has been sentenced to 20 years in prison after being found guilty of gross sexual misconduct and aggravated assault over a year ago.

Brayman received his sentence Thursday at Waldo County Judicial Center in Belfast.

The week-long trial occurred in March of 2023.

Brayman went through eight court-appointed attorneys, having only one defend him during the trial until he ultimately represented himself in court. He was his own defense during Thursday’s sentencing.

The judge called Brayman’s sexual abuse and means of control of his victim from 2011 to 2017 “cult-like”, as he used religion and other means of coercion to “brainwash” his victim into the cycle of abuse.

Brayman was also ordered to pay hundreds of dollars in victim fees and must undergo evaluation and treatment for sex offenders.
