GRANGER TWP. — Going by the book, township trustees will hold a pre-disciplinary hearing Feb. 5 for fire Lt. Brandon Quinn, 35, who was convicted this month on sex-related charges.
Trustee Richard L. Pace read a motion at Monday night’s trustees meeting that stated Quinn had violated the “working rules and policies” of the fire department.
Pace said that Quinn’s behavior was “conduct unbecoming of an employee of public service,” and that his actions rose “to the level of immoral and improper conduct under the code of ethics.”
On Jan. 12, a jury found Quinn guilty on two counts of gross sexual imposition, third-degree felonies, and nine counts of gross sexual imposition, fourth-degree felonies.
Quinn, accused of having sexual conduct with a child younger than 13, pleaded not guilty to all counts May 1.
The incidents occurred between January 2007 and June 2012.
Trustees authorized Fiscal Officer Donald L. Baker to serve Quinn, who’s being held at the Medina County Jail, with notification of the charge and pending hearing.
Quinn, who still is listed as a lieutenant with Granger Township Fire and Rescue on the department’s website, is scheduled to be sentenced March 15 before Common Pleas Judge Christopher J. Collier.
Township trustees met in executive session Monday night before announcing Quinn’s upcoming pre-disciplinary hearing scheduled for 5 p.m. Feb. 5.
Quinn has been on unpaid leave since June.
