For the first time, a man is speaking publicly about what he calls more than a decade of sexual torture at the hands of two former Connecticut firefighters. Wyman's love of bikes was an opportunity for Bartolotta, who offered to sell him a dirt bike to get close to him. Wyman said he didn't have any money to pay for it, so Bartolotta offered him another way to pay for it.
Wyman said his family had no idea that during his weekly visits to Bartolottas' home, the teenager was paying for his new bike with sex, and later being paid cash for sex.
Wyman said about a year into the relationship, Bartolotta decided to share him with fellow West Haven firefighter Frank Meyer, who also paid Wyman for sex. They would ask me a certain question like, 'How is the weather? According to Wyman, the relationship among the three lasted over a decade. But at 25 years old, Wyman decided to come forward to his family, then to police, with details about what had been happening. Bartolotta and Meyer went from esteemed firefighters and mentors in the West Haven Firefighters Explorers Program, to accused sexual predators.
The scandal would be too much for Meyer to handle. According to police, he killed himself shortly after the allegations were made public.
Wyman agreed to wear a wire for police while talking to Meyer about sex when he was underage. Prosecutor Michael Kainen had bet on that recorded conversation to help him win a conviction, but there was one problem.
Bartolotta was sentenced to 8 to 10 years in prison, with all but six months of it suspended. Original charges of slave trafficking and sexual assault, which would have carried sentences of 20 years to life in prison, were reduced to aggravated assault and performing a lewd act. But he did offer an apology to Wyman in court.
I hope you can get through this," Bartolotta said during their final meeting in court. Bartolotta has taken ability for his mistakes and is looking forward to moving on with his life. Kainen also said part of the reason he agreed to give Bartolotta a plea agreement was that Wyman's memory could not be relied on because so many years had passed. He encouraged others who may be victims of sex abuse to come forward sooner rather later. Bartolotta has to undergo sex offender treatment and cannot be around children, other than his own child, for eight years. PFAS Jun Back to Article.
