Albany-- Even though an Albany firefighter has been cleared of child molestation charges, he will stay on suspension without pay.

Thirty-nine-year-old Joseph Pait is also facing burglary charges in Lee County.

The Albany Fire Chief says Pait will remain on suspension until those charges are resolved. About six o-clock last night, a jury found Pait not guilty of molesting his ex-wife's two young daughters.

Jurors deliberated only three hours before finding him not guilty on all nine charges.

"What court do you go to get your reputation back again? asked Pait's Lawyer William Carswell. "This is the kind of thing that will stay with you. And it is a burden."

Joseph Pait is a 14-year veteran and a lieutenant with the Albany Fire Department.
