Tim Bryant is mentioned in this article as one of the attorneys hired by the city of Biddeford.


The city hired an attorney for Police Chief Roger Beaupre and Deputy Chief JoAnne Fisk amidst allegations that two former police officers sexually abused men decades ago. In an email to the Courier, City Manager wrote that under statute, “the defense and indemnification of (an) employee is allowed for an act or omission that has occurred within the course and scope of employment.”

Attorney Timothy Bryant, of Preti Flaherty law firm in Portland, is representing the chiefs.
