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.
