VINE GROVE, Ky. — A volunteer firefighter was arrested after police said he sexually abused a minor, WLKY reports.
William Nickoson, 25, was charged with sodomy of a 15-year-old girl.
According to WLKY, Nickoson was a Vine Grove volunteer firefighter when he met the teen last year, who was part of the department's junior firefighter program.
Kentucky State Police were recently made aware of the abuse after a family member found inappropriate texts between Nickoson and the teen.
Citing court documents, WLKY reports the teen told state police their relationship started in May of last year when they were alone at a house. Documents state Nickoson later verified her story, saying he knew she was 15 and it was illegal.
The investigation continues and state police said more charges could be filed.
