STOWE, Vt. (WCAX) - A Vermont woman is publicly accusing the Stowe fire chief of sexual assault.

Monday night, Rachel Fisher spoke before the Select Board about what she says happened to her.

Fisher claims current Stowe Fire Chief Kyle Walker sexually assaulted her multiple times while he was an officer for the Stowe Police Department.

The Vermont State Police investigated earlier this year and Walker doesn’t face any charges.

But Monday night, Fisher asked for accountability.

She also says victims are not alone and there are resources out there.

“We are the evidence that will never be erased-- myself and the others who come forward about the town’s fire chief though they have not been able to speak publicly like I have, as fear and silence are no longer an option for me. I’ll continue to speak out” Fisher said.

Again, state police investigated Walker earlier this year. Their investigation was passed onto the state’s attorney who decided not to file any charges in the case.

We reached out to Walker but had not yet heard back when this story was published. However, he has told other media outlets the two had a consensual relationship.
