The Vermont Attorney General’s Office announced today that Mark Beezup, 53, of Derby, Vermont, has been arraigned in Vermont Superior Court in Orleans County on the charges of sexual assault on a minor, and lewd and lascivious conduct with a child.

At that time, Mr. Beezup was employed as a Vermont state trooper; he resigned from his position in March of this year.

Beezup entered a not guilty plea and was released on conditions. If convicted, Mr. Beezup could face a maximum sentence of up to life imprisonment.
