FDNY PERV’S BREAK (No jail in kid abuse)

Kenneth Dorsey, a 41 year old veteran firefighter, is accused of repeatedly molesting three little girls in an alley near his Chelsea firehouse.  Dorsey, of Elmont, L.I., was free on $20,000 bail.  He was charged with sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child in what a prosecutor called a strong case with very serious charges.  Authorities say that throughout 2001 and 2002, Dorsey abused three girls, who are two sisters and a friend, ages 10, 12 and 13, in an alley near Engine 3's West 19th Street firehouse.  He was charged with kissing and fondling the breast and buttocks of the 10 year old, with kissing the 13 year old and with masturbating in front of at least two of the girls.  In September 2002, he had faced similar charges that he sodomized a 6 year old girl at a firehouse Christmas party.  Those charges were dismissed.

Dorsey was sentenced in Manhattan yesterday to 10 years on probation and he'll have to register as a sex offender.
