(The AEGIS Alliance) – MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN – A firefighter was placed under arrest for the alleged sexual assault of a 14 year old girl.
The criminal complaint reveals the 14 year old girl victim said to investigators that Mr Olsen has sexually touched her on three different occasions at Olsen’s home between the times of September 1 and November 22, according to a report by WAOW.
Mr Olsen is employed by the Milwaukee Fire Department and is a Lieutenant. Allegedly Mr Olson stopped sexually assaulting the victim after he met his current girlfriend, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
The complaint reveals that Mr Olson was sending text messages to the girl, and apologized to her while that she should not alert authorities.
“I am so sorry for what happened, I didn’t mean to, please don’t go, please don’t tell anyone, I am going to go to prison, I’m going to get raped, I’m so sorry … I want to help you,” one message reads, WAOW’s report revealed.
WAOW reports that Mr Olson also sent the girl’s family member a message that reads, “I have already made extreme life changes and carry this every day like a 100-pound weight no matter what it looks like on the outside I assure you I’ve taken ownership and I’m still trying to.”
Mr Olson has been employed by the Milwaukee Fire Department since he was hired in August of 2000, and last year he earned more than a $120,000 salary, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Mr Olson is part of the fire department’s Peer Support Team, which means he received special crisis intervention training to provide support to the department’s families and firefighters.
Mr Olson was placed under arrest on November 22 that morning by the Oak Creek Police Department.
The fire department says it’s taking the arrest of Olson “very seriously” and that an internal investigation has been launched.
Mr Olson’s cash bond bail is set at $7,500, according to online records. Mr Olson has been ordered not to have any contact with the girl victim or the victim’s family. Mr Olson is ordered to wear an electronic monitoring device if he’s released on bail.
If Mr Olson is convicted of these charges, he could face a maximum prison sentence of 40 years and a $100,000 fine. Mr Olson is expected to appear in court on December 2 for a preliminary hearing.
