SCRANTON — A jury on Tuesday reached a split verdict in the case of suspended Old Forge police Chief Larry Semenza, who was accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl almost a decade ago.


Semenza was 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 Capt. 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.
