WOOLWICH — Maine State Police have charged a Woolwich man with 15 counts of possessing child pornography.

Police say 31-year-old William Diemer was arrested Monday at the New Harbor boat manufacturer where he works.

The investigation began last fall when police got a tip and seized Diemer’s home computer.

State police say it does not appear the images on his computer are children from Maine.

Police confirm that Diemer was convicted in 2004 of cruelty to animals for a sexual assault on a horse while he was a student at the University of Maine.

Diemer was freed on $5,000 bail and summoned to court next month. He could not be reached and it was unclear if he had a lawyer.
