Dance instructor out on bail, charged with sexually abusing minor
WISCASSET (WGME) – A dance instructor has been charged with sexually abusing a minor on the Midcoast.
The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office says 31-year-old Ryan Morrill was a dance instructor at studios in five other towns, and at this point they say it’s possible there are other victims.
The sheriff's office confirmed to CBS 13 that the relationship involved a student at the Midcoast Dance Studio in Newcastle.
An investigation that began Wednesday revealed that Morrill was involved sexually with that student for 10 months.
The sheriff's office also said he worked at Rising Sun Dance Studio in Winthrop. We reached out to both studios for comment but have not heard back.
The sheriff’s office also says Morrill taught at several other dance studios in Lewiston-Auburn, Thomaston and Augusta.
Other victims are encouraged to contact the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.
Morrill is out Friday night on $1,000 bail.
He is charged with sexual abuse of a minor, Class C, but the sheriff’s office says that more charges are expected.
