PORTSMOUTH – A Newport County Grand Jury has indicted a Portsmouth man on five counts of first-degree child molestation.
Christopher Marikian, 33, of 2719 East Main Rd., allegedly molested a 14-year-old girl twice on or about Feb. 27, once sometime between Feb. 1 and Feb. 28, and twice on or about April 17, all in Portsmouth, according to a statement yesterday by the state attorney general’s office.
The grand jury handed up the indictment on June 29.
Portsmouth police arrested Marikian on April 19 and since then, he has been held without bail at the Adult Correctional Institutions, in Cranston. He will be arraigned July 26 in Superior Court in Newport.
Further details of his arrest could not be learned from the Portsmouth Police Department or the attorney general’s office.
Marikian is an amateur filmmaker, whose production company Unicow! Productions last year completed a documentary called Tiny Tim: The Last Hurrah about the late ukulele musician Tiny Tim. Marikian’s mockumentary Aleister! on occultist Aleister Crowley was screened during Haunted Newport events in 2002.
