Former Old Forge police chief Larry Semenza has been sentenced to 18 months to four years in prison and must register as a sex offender under Megan's Law for 15 years.
Lackawanna County Judge Vito Geroulo sentenced Semenza, 49, for corruption of a minor, a first-degree misdemeanor, and failing to report child abuse.
Geruolo sentenced former Old Forge police Captain Jamie Krenitsky, 35, to 9 to 23 months in jail and must register as a sex offender for 15 years.
Geruolo sentenced former borough firefighter Walter Chiavacci, 48, to 3 to 18 months. He must also register as a sex offender for 15 years.
Chiavacci and Krenitsky pleaded guilty to one count of indecent assault.
All three men were charged in May 2012 after a victim came forward to allege Semenza and the other men had sexually abused her when she was a teenager and volunteer junior firefighter with an Old Forge fire department. The woman claimed she had a romantic relationship with Semenza from 2004 to 2007, starting when she was 15.
