Scranton, Lackawanna County - There are new developments in an ongoing sex scandal that has enveloped a Lackawanna County community.
Suspended Old Forge police captain Jamie Krenitsky was back in court Tuesday for a pre-trial hearing.
Krenitsky, along with suspended Old Forge Police Chief Larry Semenza and former firefighter Walter Chiavacci are all accused of having inappropriate contact with an underage girl years ago.
All three cases are still slated to go to trial.
For the first time at Tuesday's hearing, an audio recording between the alleged victim and Krenitsky was played in court.
The recording was a telephone call beween the two. It was 38 minutes long.
There was no direct mention of sex on in and no dates were given but at one point, Krenitsky said, "I'm very sorry for anything I may have done."
Prosecutors say it will clearly be a piece of evidence and say its important because Krenitsky did not deny any wrongdoing.
Krenitsky's attorney wants all of the charges against his client dropped.
"Today we've made motions to have the charges dismissed and also to have my client's pre-miranda statements dismissed," defense attorney Jason Mattioli said.
The victim was called back to the witness stand Tuesday.
She testified she had eight encounters with Krenitsky in the bunkroom of the Old Forge Fire Department. She said they started at the end of February 2005 just before she turned 16 years old. She could not give exact dates of other instances.
"The fact that she can be so precise and so sure as she has been from day one with the fact that she was under 16 when these activities occurred is very important," Deputy District Attorney Jennifer McCambridge said.
Krenitsky's attorney has challenged the dates and the victims age at the time.
"The rationale is, how can my client defend himself for his behavior that's being called into question, when he doesn't know what date this alleged occurance took place?" Mattioli questioned.
As for the audio recording that was played in court, prosecutors think it will be an important piece of evidence.
"Up until this point, its been the victim's word alone and now, the court got to hear the defendent's words as well so I think that's very important," McCambridge said.
As of right now, no trial date has been set for Krenitsky to head to trial. Prosecutors are hoping a trial will happen in early 2013.
