An assistant fire chief in Leetsdale who is also the commander of an EMS strike team was acquitted of rape charges in Dauphin County Thursday.
Amos P. Cameron, 48, was charged with rape of an unconscious victim, indecent assault and sexual assault following an emergency medical services conference in Harrisburg.
Mr. Cameron, who is the commander of Pennsylvania’s Region 4 Emergency Medical Services Strike Team, claimed in his defense that the sex was consensual, said his attorney, Steven C. Townsend. His client cooperated with police from the beginning, he said, wrote a 16-page statement and passed a polygraph test.
According to Mr. Townsend, the alleged victim in the case is white and married, and there was testimony that she was on fertility drugs at the time. Mr. Cameron is black, and they argued that the woman made up the rape story to cover up that she had had consensual sex.
Mr. Cameron, who had been relieved of some duties during the of the case, will now resume his full workload.
