Firefighter charged with sexual assault

James R. Serfass, a lieutenant with the Upper Black Eddy Fire Company and the son of the station’s chief, was charged with second-degree sexual assault and fourth-degree criminal sexual contact of a 14 year old girl.  Police were called by the girl’s father about activity that occurred two days prior.  When the officer was at the house taking a report, Serfass showed up to apologize.  He was arrested on the spot.

Based upon the charges, I can make a guess as to what took place.  I am sure he made a statement as he was ready to apologize to the father.  If this case can be handled quickly by a good attorney, Serfass should be able to avoid prison.
