Bond Set For Columbus Firefighter Facing Child Sex Charges

Franklin County Sheriff's Office

 Bond is set at 15 thousand dollars for a Columbus firefighter charged with importuning and attempted sexual conduct with a minor. 

Prosecutors say 54-year-old Walter Lash attempted to have sexual contact with a 15-year-old girl earlier this week. Lash has been placed on unpaid leave. He's also been placed on leave by Pickerington school officials as assistant girls softball coach at Central High School.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
