The former Assistant Fire Chief for the Altoona Fire Department was acquitted in a child sex assault case against him.
Matthew Detrich was charged last year.
He was accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting a teenage girl from 2014 to 2016.
A Blair County jury acquitted Detrich of all charges including statutory sexual assault and aggravated indecent assault.
The Blair County DA’s office says quote:
“We respect the decision of the jury and will continue to fight for victims to get justice.”
