Ex-fire chief accused of abuse

The Associated Press reports that a former Kingston fire chief who abruptly retired in February shortly after receiving a new contract now faces a sexual assault charge.

Robert Heath has been charged with indecent assault and battery on a person 14 or older.

Police say the 59-year-old Heath put his hands down a 23-year-old man’s pants last month and tried to kiss him.

Authorities say Heath later apologized to the man in a text.

The Associated Press typically does not identify people who say they’re victims of sexual assault.

 Heath received a new three-year contract with the Kingston Fire Department on Feb. 7. He retired less than two weeks later.
