Firefighters Charged in Vermont Sex Slavery Case

Two volunteer firefighters are accused of forcing a boy into sexual slavery that lasted for
years, according to the Vermont State Police Department.
Brett Bartolotta, 42, a former volunteer with the West Haven, Connecticut, fire department, and Frank
Meyer, 39, an active volunteer with the same department, have been charged with aggravated sexual
assault and what Vermont law categorizes as "slave trafficking -- life of prostitution." The men were
charged in Vermont because most of the alleged crimes occurred in Bartolotta's Vermont home,
according to an affidavit filed by prosecutors.
The alleged relationship began when the victim was 12 years old, and continued until he was past the
age of consent, according to the affidavit by Trooper Daniel Trottier of the Vermont State Police.
The affidavit states the victim told Trottier that he purchased a dirt bike from Bartolotta in 2001, and
subsequently he was forced to participate in sexual acts, including bondage, after he was unable to
make sufficient payments on the purchase.
The alleged victim was introduced to Meyer, who was a friend of Bartolotta's, about a year later, according to affidavit. The three allegedly engaged in sexual activity up until 2012, the affidavit says
