"Where Are They Now?" piece profiling the current lives of five Maine personalities from the past. Raymond Luc Levasseur, one of Maine's most notorious criminals, is currently serving a 45-year sentence at the federal penitentiary in Atlanta for a series of New York-area bombings in the early 1980s. Levasseur, leader of the United Freedom Front, remains unrepentant and considers himself a political prisoner. Libby Mitchell, 63, a state legislator for 18 years, is now a student at the University of Maine School of Law. Peter Cox, 66, co-founder of "Maine Times," is chairman of an anti-sprawl group called Eco-Eco, and is a recent past president of the Wolfe's Neck Farm Foundation. James Lewisohn, a former English professor and poet at the University of Maine in Portland, was convicted of the 1974 killing of his wife, Roslyn. Lewisohn, 70, was paroled in 1984 and obtained a master's of divinity at the Bangor Theological Seminary. Unable to find a place as a priest or a monk, he lives alone in a small apartment in Bar Harbor. Madeleine "Maddy" Corson, 66, heiress to the Guy Gannett media empire, sold most of the company's media holdings in 1998. Corson is now involved in nonprofit work with Portland's Gulf of Maine Research Institute, the Victoria Mansion, and the Children's Theatre of Maine.
