The lewdness charges brought against a Tucson fire captain for allegedly harassing a subordinate were dismissed last week.
The Pima County Attorney's Office dropped three misdemeanor charges against Captain Roger Tamietti last Monday. The charges were brought after paramedic firefighter Cody Jenkins claimed that he was physically assaulted and harassed three times by Captain Roger Tamietti on November 9, 2012 while working at Station 7.
Captain Tamietti was demoted and in February, Jenkins filed a $500,000 sexual harassment claim. In May the city paid Jenkins $125,000 to settle his claim. Two weeks later the civil service commission reinstated Tamietti to Captain finding the city’s investigative methods leading to the discipline were “dubious”.
