VT - Police arrest two CT firefighers, charge them with sex slavery
CT Firefighters Arrested for Sex Slavery: Cops (nbcconnecticut.com)
A current and former firefighter from the West Haven Fire Department were arrested, accused of forcing a 12 year-old boy into sex slavery in Vermont until he was 25, according to a spokesman for the West Haven Police Department.
Vermont State Police arrested Frank Meyer, 39, and Brett Bartolotta, 42, in Ludlow, Vermont on Wednesday after a sting operation in which the victim wore a wire.
Police said the firefighters bribed the boy with money and gifts, including a dirt bike and a hunting bow, since 2001 to get him to perform hundreds of sexual favors over the 12-year span.
The boy first met Bartolotta when he went to a friend's house to ride dirt bikes and Bartolotta approached the teen to join his racing team, according to documents filed with Superior Court in Vermont.
A year after the first meeting, Bartolotta introduced the victim to Meyer, and the sex acts would occur on Friday nights, prior to Saturday races, according to court documents.
As time passed, Meyer brought teens from Connecticut to Vermont and once asked the victim to perform a sex act on another 17-year-old boy, according to court documents, but the teen refused.
Police said Meyer also asked the teen to alter his appearance to look young and boyish and offered to pay for a new hunting bow in exchange for sex.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This poor young man. You get a dead father, a stolen dirt bike, and two of the world's flippin rotten, no conscious pedophiles abuse you.
They get a lousey $50,000 bail, and a host of people that didn't believe eitherof these two POS have a traffic ticket.
There's other victims out there.
A little more sickening information at link above.
Way to mess up The Explorer program too M*FO. Can't even go into the other two POS freaks at wfgodot's link.
Hoping somehow this kid having the guts to have a part in busting them gives him a little bit of empowerment.

A former West Haven, Connecticut, volunteer firefighter was spared further jail time at his sentencing in Vermont Thursday for his role in an alleged sexual slavery case involving a teenage boy.
A co-defendant committed suicide two years ago after some of the details of the allegations were made public.
Brett Bartolotta, 45, was sentenced Thursday to five to 10 years in prison, all but six months of which were suspended, after he pleaded guilty to a felony count of aggravated assault and an accompanying misdemeanor count of committing a prohibited sexual act.
