A Jim Thorpe firefighter is taken into custody Thursday for allegedly sexually assaulting a fourteen year old girl.

News 13 was there when 53 year old Charles Leinthall Jr. was arraigned Thursday afternoon.

Court documents say on November 5th, the girl was at the Fairview Fire Department in the back of a fire engine with her boyfriend when Leinthall opened the door and made an inappropriate comment toward her.

He later inappropriately touched the girl numerous times.

The victim told police she was able to get away from the man but he followed her into an office at the station where he told the girl she "better not tell anyone."

Leinthall later admitted to the acts in front of police. He's locked up in Carbon County Prison and will be in court November 21st...
