Jasper fireman held without bond on child molestation, sodomy charges
Jared Taffner, 30, chief engineer for the Jasper Fire Protection District, allegedly molested an underage girl, who told interviewers at the Children's Center that he had used his mouth and fingers on her and that he put her on the bed, "laid on top of her for about 25 seconds and was moving a lot," according to the probable cause statement.
The child described four incidents that had taken place within the last year, the probable cause statement said.
After the police read him his rights, Taffner acknowledged that they might find evidence indicating that he had been on the girl's bed.
