Loudoun County authorities say a volunteer with the Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System was arrested today after an investigation determined he engaged in an inappropriate relationship with a juvenile he met during his duties with the Hamilton Volunteer Rescue Squad.

Jacen N. Martin, 23, of Purcellville, has been charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor and possession of child pornography. The inappropriate contact with the juvenile came to light on June 22, and Martin was immediately suspended from the fire and rescue system, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.

The age and gender of the juvenile are not being released to protect the identity of the victim, according to the LCSO.

The investigation was conducted by the sheriff's office's Special Victims Unit.

Martin has been released from the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on a $2,500 secured bond.

I showed the comments to my 15 year old. He wanted to know who all the childish and "off the topic" sounding commenters were, he assumed they are all from high school too.

It is curious why you chose this photo versus the booking photo.

So you dug up his picture off "Indeed" really? Why do you all post pics of people that arrested, no one is guilty yet? Why is there no mug shot in an orange zoot suit? Good thing it's not an immigrant. What's his immigration status???

Chris McHale

Boom, there's his mug shot. How do you know he's not an immigrant? Is it because of his skin color, that's a bit bigoted don't you think?

So wrong when the people you are suppose to trust more than others do these things.

Are there back round checks on these volunteers? If so, who does them ??

johnsons3

Yes, background checks are completed for anyone connected to Loudoun County F&R. If the individual had no previous record, no reason not to accept him.

LoCo Bob

A record check is not a real background check. Are references checked, people interviewed, is there a psych eval, drug tests, ….a polygraph test?

DaPark

Bob, The volunteers are not polygraphed. The career staff are.

This is like the 3rd case like this coming from Hamilton VRS. They obviously shouldn't allow minors to volunteer there.

Where’s the mugshot?

chrisnich

Mugshot is readily available through Google. Not much to see.

Qwertyuiop

It’s here now. The point is that some groups of people have their mugshots immediately posted while his was a picture from social media.

What's his immigration status?

pt2pt

What's yours?

Chris McHale

I haven't been arrested. BTW - I'm have dual citizenship. So I guess I did it the right way twice.
