Assistant Fire Chief In Utah Charged With Raping Co-Workers

Austin James Corry
Utah County Jail

  A central-Utah assistant fire chief has been charged with sexually assaulting a co-worker several times over the course of three years.

26-year-old Austin J. Corry appeared in court Thursday on 14 counts, including rape and forcible sexual abuse.

Prosecutors say the first assault happened in 2015, when he was her supervisor at the Kanosh Fire Department. She considered quitting as the abuse continued, but didn't want to lose her job. Charging documents say that audio recordings she made of two assaults this year show Corry ignoring her pleas to stop.

Prosecutors say she spoke to police after a fire truck arrived at the station while he was assaulting her in August, and her co-workers called police.

No attorney was immediately listed for Corry in court documents.
