Jesse Hodgson: Firefighter guilty of forcing 11-year-old to watch him urinate in diaper
Jesse Hodgson, a former firefighter for Mountain View Fire Rescue in Longmont, will have to register as a sex offender. The 37-year-old has pleaded guilty to instructing his 11-year-old stepdaughter to wear an adult diaper as punishment. Authorities say he also asked her to watch him urinate in his own diaper and then change him. But that's not all.
According to the Weld County district attorney's office, there are two more victims. The Longmont Times-Call reports that the second victim was an intoxicated female relative whom he sexually assaulted after a Memorial Day party while wearing an adult diaper.
The third victim accused Hodgson of having unlawful sexual contact with her while she was babysitting his son. Authorities say Hodgson, who once served as the fire department's spokesman, was pursuing a "diaper fetish."
Hodgson pleaded guilty to three counts: attempted sexual assault, unlawful sexual contact and indecent exposure. He faces a maximum of three years in prison and will be sentenced July 30. No matter the sentence, Hodgson will be required to register as a sex offender.
