Firefighter not indicted on sex charges


Firefighter not indicted on sex charges

A grand jury on Thursday chose not to indict a Brookville firefighter who had been charged with sexual battery and gross sexual imposition.

Josh Rawlins, 25, was arrested earlier this month after the Brookville Fire Department contacted the police department about a possible incident involving sexual contact between Rawlins and an underage girl.

In a probable cause affidavit filed in Municipal Court, a Brookville police detective wrote, "The defendant confessed to having a sexual relationship with (the victim) at his residence. The defendant also confessed to having intercourse with her while on duty at the Brookville FD."

Rawlins was put on administrative leave from the Brookville fire department, and three other fire departments that he did part-time work for -- Trotwood, Butler Twp. and Clayton.

Misdemeanor charges are still possible.
