HARRISON COUNTY, KY (Lex 18) – A Harrison County Constable and Paris firefighter is facing charges after police say he gave teenagers alcohol. Now, he is also facing a rape charge.

William Michael Fields is accused of giving two girls alcohol at his home in Harrison County, along with other people under 21.

One of the girls was allowed to drive away from his home after drinking the alcohol with two passengers in her car, Police said in an arrest citation. An 18-year-old, who officers said did not have a driver’s license, was told to drive another teen to town because he was intoxicated.

Investigators say the 36-year-old is now charged with third-degree rape. Back in March, he allegedly picked up a teen, gave her alcohol and drove her to Paris. The citation said that a video of the sex crime was apparently made and later deleted. Investigators said that they found a screenshot from the video on the victim’s phone.

Fields is in the Bourbon County Detention Center charged with unlawful transaction with a minor and wanton endangerment.
