(iWIDK by Aaron Lanton) - Two volunteer firemen have been caught in a shocking scandal.
In West Haven Connecticut, two volunteer firemen, 39-year-old Frank Meyer and 42-year-old Brett Bartolotta have been charged with aggravated sexual assault and what Vermont state law categorizes as “”slave trafficking — life of prostitution”" after they were exposed for forcing a boy into sexual acts over a period of years beginning when the victim was 12 years old.
According to CNN, the alleged victim was coerced into sexual acts in 2001 after he fell behind on payments on a bike that was sold to him by Bartolotta.
About a year after the sex acts began, Meyer was introduced to the victim and began to sexually abuse him with Bartolotta.
In the affidavit, the victim says he never told anyone because he enjoyed receiving money and other kinds of payment.
The three engaged in sexual activity until 2012, but it is unclear why the sexual contact ended.
