Seeley allegedly admitted to police that he and Klein drove the teen to “dates” and that he received cash from the transactions, Thompson wrote.
The three appeared in Cumberland County Unified Court on Wednesday. Seeley was released on 0 bail and is scheduled to appear in court on April 16.
The victim allegedly admitted to police that “she had previously been sex trafficked by another pimp who involved her in the commercial sex trade.” Police said Fernandes admitted taking the teen on “dates” in Lewiston and Old Orchard Beach, and discussing a fee, but “denied being a ‘pimp’ because he didn’t make much money and he never beat [the victim],” Thompson wrote in the affidavit.
Fernandes’ bail was increased from $25,000 to $50,000, and he remains in Cumberland County Jail. To reach a sexual assault advocate, call the Statewide Sexual Assault Crisis and Support Line at 800-871-7741, TTY 888-458-5599.
