One of the Annapolis firefighters fired for alleged on-duty sexual misconduct will get a chance to face his accusers in public.
Firefighter Robert Thomas, whose internal appeals have been exhausted, was taken off the city payroll yesterday.
But City Attorney Jonathan Hodgson said Thomas has appealed his case again, this time to Annapolis' five-member Civil Service Board, appointed by Mayor Alfred A. Hopkins.
Thomas' attorney, Samuel Brown, has accused Fire Chief Edward Sherlock Jr. of conducting a "witch hunt." Brown said he will call several witnesses at the hearing, including the three women who were allegedly involved in the incidents.
