$100K bond set for Liberty firefighter

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Liberty firefighter, now on unpaid leave from his department, will soon have sex charges against him heard by a Mahoning County grand jury.

Jesse Culbertson, 30, was back in court Wednesday accused of having sex with a 15-year-old girl from Jackson Township last fall. He is free on $100,000 bond.

According to court documents, the two met in September. The victim’s parents discovered their daughter was seeing an older man and the victim identified Culbertson.

Authorities say Culbertson confessed during questioning. He is charged with unlawful sex with a minor.

Culbertson joined the Liberty Fire Department 10 months ago.
