BELLINGHAM — Michael Sulak, 52, a veteran Seattle firefighter, pleaded not guilty in Whatcom County Superior Court Friday to charges of child rape. Sulak is accused of having sex with a then-15-year-old girl several times late last year. Sulak is charged with three counts of third-degree child rape and one count of unlawful harboring of a minor. According to court documents, the girl, who has since turned 16, told authorities she first met Sulak through a theater group, Northwest Washington Theater Group, and that they grew close because she felt he “really listened to her,” court documents said. “She admits being flirtatious with him … does recall one incident when she took his phone and hid it in her bra. The defendant put his hand in her bra to get it out.” READ MORE HERE---------------------------------------------
