SCRANTON (AP) — A jury has reached a split verdict in the case of a suspended northeastern Pennsylvania police chief accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl almost a decade ago.


Suspended Old Forge police Chief Larry Semenza has been found not guilty of four of six charges, including felony counts of aggravated indecent assault and unlawful contact with a minor.


The Lackawanna County jury did find him guilty Tuesday of two misdemeanor charges: corrupting a minor and failing to report suspected child abuse.


Semenza testified he was strictly a mentor to the girl.


Prosecutors claimed Semenza and former police captain Jamie Krenitsky assaulted the girl beginning in 2004 when she was 15 and a junior firefighter. Krenitsky and a former borough firefighter have pleaded guilty to misdemeanor indecent assault.
