OLD FORGE — A former borough police captain accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl has pleaded guilty to one count of misdemeanor indecent assault.

Jamie Krenitsky agreed to the plea deal Thursday. Krenitsky was suspended as captain of the Old Forge Police Department after being charged last year with two other men. He resigned last week in advance of his court appearance.

Krenitsky and Old Forge Police Chief Larry Semenza were charged with sexually assaulting the girl beginning in 2004 when she a 15-year-old junior firefighter.

Semenza is scheduled to go on trial in October on charges of unlawful contact with a minor, indecent exposure and corruption of a minor.

Former borough firefighter Walter Chiavacci, also accused of sexually abusing the girl, pleaded guilty to indecent assault in December.
