A second firefighter in the Bennington Rural Fire Department is facing sexual assault charges after police say he had sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl.
The Rutland Herald reports 21-year-old Zachary Spaulding of Bennington is facing aggravated sexual assault charges, among others.
That same girl also accused a captain in the department, 25-year-old Bryan Watson of Bennington, of having sexual contact with her when she was 13.
Both men have denied the charges. If convicted, they could face up to life in prison.
