According to police, the 14-year-old victim told them she fell asleep on a couch at her father's house and woke to find Gibeau sexually assaulting her. At the time of the alleged assault, the girl's older brother was hosting a party at the house and Gibeau lived in a trailer on the property.
Gibeau told investigators the girl had been drinking and that he believed the sex was consensual, according to the arrest warrant application. He said he did not know her age.
Gibeau is charged with first-degree sexual assault, intercourse with force/threat/unable to consent and risk of injury to a child.
He is being held on $200,000 bond and is scheduled to be in Waterbury Superior Court on Wednesday.
