BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A fire department captain faces sexual assault charges involving a 13-year-old girl.
Bryan Watson of the Bennington Rural Fire Department pleaded not guilty Monday in Bennington Superior Court.
Police allege the 25-year-old Watson participated in sexual activities with the girl more than 10 times in the summer of 2011.
He's been released and faces a hearing on Dec. 27.
Fire Chief Joseph Hayes said Watson is still a captain of the fire department he has served on about five years.
