Middleton firefighter who sexually abused girl sentenced to prison

MIDDLETON, Mass. (AP) — A Middleton firefighter convicted of sexually abusing a teenage girl for nearly three years was sentenced Tuesday to two to five years in state prison.

Andrew LeColst, a 41-year-old former high school physical education teacher, pleaded guilty to three counts of aggravated child rape and one count of indecent assault and battery, the Eagle Tribune reported. LeColst was also sentenced to five years of supervised probation following his release from prison.

The abuse took place during the mid-2000s when the victim was between the ages of 13 and 15, she told the judge in a victim-impact statement.

During his probation, LeColst will be required to have no contact with the victim or her family and register as a sex offender.
