Sex Assault Charges Lead to Paramedic's Firing

ALBANY, N.Y. -- The town of Rotterdam, N.Y., will fire a paramedic accused of sexually assaulting a 4-year-old child, Rotterdam police said.

David Harnett, 31, of South Westcott Road was charged Tuesday night with predatory child sexual assault and rape for alleged contact with the youngster, police said.

Investigators began their inquiry after getting a complaint from Child Protective Services about 4 p.m. New Year's Day. Harnett had been a civilian paramedic in Rotterdam for about four years, beginning in 2002, officials said. He most recently worked as a paramedic paid by the call.

Harnett was arraigned Tuesday and sent to Schenectady County jail without bail. He is due back in court today.
