Former fire company president gets prison on child predator charges


The former president of a fire company in Carbon County will serve up to three years in prison for sexually assaulting a 16-year-old volunteer.

Keith Cebrosky, 66, of Palmerton, was sentenced Friday to 1-3 years in state prison followed by four years of probation, Attorney General Josh Shapiro’s office said.

Cebrosky pleaded guilty in September to felony charges of unlawful contact with a minor, solicitation for sexual assault by a volunteer or employee of a nonprofit association, and intimation of a witness or victim.

The attorney general’s office said Cebrosky solicited the teen for his own sexual gratification then arranged a $1,000 cash payment to the child in exchange for dropping charges against him.

Prosecutors said the teen was previously victimized by another fire company volunteer who pleaded guilty to felony charges last April.

They said when Cebrosky preyed upon the teen, he knew he had already been abused by another member of the fire company.
