A special education teacher has been charged with sexually assaulting and exploiting two boys this summer. Patrik Ian Arsenault, 27, of Norridgewock, who was recently hired as a special education teacher in Farmington and had been one in Wayne, was arrested Wednesday, according to court records. He is accused of assaulting the 6- and 7-year-old boys from Clinton in Belgrade and trading child pornography online for a year, court records said. School officials have filed an order banning him from working at the Farmington school where he had been hired, said Mount Blue School District Superintendent Tom Ward.
