LEXINGTON, Ky. — A former Kentucky firefighter and constable was sentenced to prison after he was convicted for recording himself having sex with a teenager inside an ambulance. 

William Michael Fields Jr., 37, was sentenced to 35 years in prison for recording multiple sexual encounters with a 17-year-old girl, one incident which occurred in the back of an ambulance, WZTV 17 reports

In March 2019, Fields began communicating with the teenager through Snapchat about career opportunities in EMS and law enforcement, and he asked to continue talking with her via text message. Eventually, Fields asked the girl to meet up with him, where he provided alcohol before the first sexual incident. 

The second sexual meet-up occurred a month later, and Fields again recorded the incident. 

Eastern District of Kentucky U.S. Attorney Robert M. Duncan, Jr., said of the case: "This conduct is simply inexcusable – the defendant abused his positions of trust and authority, as a firefighter and constable, and used them to sexually exploit a minor victim. He further victimized her by knowingly using her to create images of child pornography. This despicable conduct warrants significant punishment, both to hold him accountable and to deter others from engaging in similar conduct.”
