A Kentucky firefighter has been fired from one department and suspended without pay from a second after he was accused of having unwanted sexual contact with a colleague in the firehouse. Elijah Mays was arrested earlier this week, hours after he allegedly assaulted a female colleague inside the Ludlow Fire Department’s firehouse on Oak Street.
According to Cincinnati.com, Mays was a part-time lieutenant with the Ludlow Fire Department, and a new-hire career firefighter with the Erlanger Fire Department. He was charged Monday with first-degree sexual abuse. Mays has been terminated by the Ludlow Fire Department, and suspended without pay from the Erlanger Fire Department.
Mays was released on home confinement on March 24, 2020. He is scheduled to be back in court May 12, 2020. More on the story.
