MADISON CO., Ind. — The former Fire Chief for the Summitville Fire Department is facing child seduction and solicitation charges.

In addition to serving as the Fire Chief for the Summitville Fire Department, Sizelove was also a reserve for Summitville Police. He had positions in both departments when the sexual misconduct took place.
Sizelove was relieved of his police duties after a search warrant was served at his home. During the search, several devices were found with porn depicting the underage victim. Sizelove was arrested after turning himself into the Madison County Jail Friday morning.
The charges he faces are:
– Criminal Deviate Conduct – Using or Threatening to Use Force or Violence
