A Jim Thorpe firefighter charged with sexually assaulting a 14 year old girl will face trial.

53 year old Charles Leinthall Jr. is accused of inappropriately touching and making lewd comments toward the girl back in November at the Fairview Fire Station.

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

Leinthall later admitted to the acts in front of police.

He was in district court Wednesday where all charges against him were waived.

Leinthall is out of prison on unsecured bail and will be formally arraigned in January.
