The Associated Press reports that a former Kingston fire chief who abruptly retired in February shortly after receiving a new contract now faces a sexual assault charge.
Robert Heath has been charged with indecent assault and battery on a person 14 or older.
Police say the 59-year-old Heath put his hands down a 23-year-old man’s pants last month and tried to kiss him.
Authorities say Heath later apologized to the man in a text.
The Associated Press typically does not identify people who say they’re victims of sexual assault.
