Fire Lieutenant Charged With Raping Underage Subordinate During Camping Trip

by Graham Gremore March 30, 2016


A high-ranking fire lieutenant from Lakeville, MA has been charged with raping his much younger co-worker.

51-year-old Thomas Dunlevy is a 20 year veteran of the Lakeville Fire Department. He is a well-liked, highly-respected figure in his community. Or at least he was until earlier this week when he was arraigned and charged with rape, procuring liquor for a minor, assault and battery and witness intimidation over an alleged incident with a 20-year-old subordinate.

“I was afraid. He was my supervisor. He was my lieutenant. And I looked up to him as a father,” Dunlevy’s alleged victim, who works part-time as a firefighter, told WCVB-TV.

According to the victim, the incident happened during a work retreat at a campground back in 2014 when he was 20 years old. The victim says Dunlevy supplied him with alcohol then raped him inside a tent.

“I was underage,” the victim continued. “I was drunk. I was afraid of him. He was my supervisor.”

He said that when Dunlevy first climbed on top of him, it took him by such surprise he didn’t know how to respond.

“I didn’t know what was going to happen so I just froze up,” he recalled. “I couldn’t move. I just laid there.”

Afterwards, the victim says Dunlevy threatened to out him to his coworkers if he told anyone about the assault.

“If I ever mentioned anything, he would tell people that I was gay,” he said.

The intimidation forked for a while until the victim decided he couldn’t keep silence any longer.

“I want other people to know that it’s OK to come forward and they don’t have to be afraid of anything.”

In a statement, the victim’s attorney, Tyler Fox, called Dunlevy a “predator” who preys on young, impressionable young men.

“It’s a classic predator pattern where someone as my client said takes them under their wing, presents himself either as a father figure to protect them from something or to help them and ends up abusing them and sometimes these predators are in positions of power just so they can abuse people like that,” Fox said.

Lakeville Fire Chief Daniel Hopkins says he believes there may be other victims who haven’t yet come forward.

“There’s that potential from what I gather,” Hopkins said. “From the little that I know about the whole situation there have been names that popped up.”

Dunlevy is currently being held on $25,000 cash bail.
