LYNDEN, Wash. (AP) - A former Seattle firefighter has been sentenced to nearly four years in prison for the repeated rape of a teen he met through a theater group.

The Bellingham Herald reports (http://goo.gl/sTnZ0N ) 54-year-old Michael James “Suey” Sulak convinced the girl who was under age 16 that they were in love. She reportedly ran away from her home to be with him in December 2013.

Charging papers say in four days while her family was searching for her, Sulak raped the girl, in a Ferndale trailer and in a pickup in a Queen Anne parking lot near his firehouse.

Sulak’s plea deal suggesting he spend a year in jail with conditions fell apart after police reports emerged alleging another teen had been sexually abused by him when he was a youth pastor and the victim said she no longer agreed with it.
