Victim Takes Stand in Fire Chief Sexual Abuse Case

The young woman who alleges that former Clearwater Fire Chief Jamie Geer sexually molested her, took the stand yesterday.

The woman, who is now 19, says Geer molested her for a period of about nine years, starting when she was 8 or 9 years old.

Prosecutors say that Geer gave the girl gifts in exchange for sexual favors.

The girl testified she became sexually curious at a young age and began asking Geer about sex and that he taught her about sex beginning at age 9 demonstrating sexual acts and making her touch him.

She says she even started performing sexual favors for things like a luxury purse, cigarettes and alcohol.

She said she didn’t come forward sooner because she didn’t want to ruin Geer’s life but she finally did after she started having nightmares that Geer was raping her.

Geer’s attorneys say she’s lying and has changed her story too many times.

Geer faces life in prison if he’s convicted.
