A 31-year-old former police officer and emergency medical technician faces two counts of sexual assault of a child under the age of 13.

Jacob Swiedarke was charged Wednesday in Adams County. He is accused of assaulting a four-year-old girl in the town of Rome. Investigators say the attacks happened over a six-month period ending in April 2013. Swiedarke faces similar charges in Wood County involving the same victim. He's also accused of sexually assaulting two girls, ages eight and nine, in his Port Edwards home in September. They say he paid them money after the assaults.
