The former chief of the Chopmist Hill Fire Department has been indicted by a Providence County Grand Jury on eight counts of sexual assault and sexual misconduct.
The indictment charges Timothy Homerston, 52, with four counts of second-degree sexual assault, three counts of simple assault, and one count of indecent exposure. According to the indictment, Homerston sexually assaulted three adult men between February 2015 and February 2016.
Homerston resigned last March after the fire company took a vote of no confidence in his leadership. At that time he was accused of having sex on fire department property and sexual harassing several male members.
