Kentucky State Police arrested an Estill County man late Friday evening after receiving reports from a family member that he had been inappropriately touching them.

Police say the victim told officers that their foster father, 36 year-old Jerry Goosey, had started touching them inappropriately in the genital region when they were underage. According to the arrest citation, this incident eventually escalated to several instances of a sexual nature which occurred over a span of months.

Upon speaking with Goosey, he admitted to KSP officials that he had engaged in various sexual acts with the victim, beginning when they were 17 years old and lasting until about a month ago. Goosey was the victim’s legal guardian during the time of the reported incidents.

Officers arrested Goosey and lodged him in the Three Forks Regional Jail, where he was charged with 3rd Degree Rape and Sodomy. He has been placed on administrative leave from all three of his firefighter positions at Clark County Fire Department, Toyota Fire Department, and Hargett Volunteer Fire Department.
