Ex-Fire Chief To Face Trial Next Year

A date has been set for the sexual assault trial of the former Kingsville fire chief.

Windsor Superior Court staff say three weeks have been set aside for Robert Kissner’s trial starting January 7. Pre-trial hearings will be held December 5 and 6.

The 60-year-old is facing 17 charges, including sexual assault, sexual exploitation, and sexual interference. He was initially charged in December of 2016.

The OPP says the assaults occurred between 2002 and 2016 and involved three adult victims and minors.

Kissner is now retired.
