Lockport Union-Sun & Journal —

“I had told Jeff Elsenheimer that I was sixteen years (sic), but was going to be seventeen soon. Jeff, stated that for a while I was going to be jail bait,” the deposition reads.

The teen’s deposition says that he left Elsenheimer’s house after receiving a call from the person who had dropped him off at the residence.

The Medina Police Department was contacted about the incident Saturday, with an initial investigation undertaken with the assistance of the Orleans County Major Felony Crime Task Force.

Medina Fire Chief Todd Zinkievich said Monday that Elsenheimer has been suspended with pay in accordance with the village’s union agreement.

While Zinkievich could not comment on Elsenheimer’s future status, he did express that the now-understaffed department would maintain its level of service.

“We’re still staffed enough that even in this time of need we can ensure that every call is covered,” Zinkievich said.

Cardone said the incident did not occur while Elsenheimer was acting a representative of the fire department, he did consider Elsenheimer’s contact with the teen to be somewhat work related.

“But for his employment,” Cardone said. “He would not have had knowledge of the victim.”

Elsenheimer also worked as a part-time dispatcher and as a substitute teacher. He has been relived of his duties in the dispatch office, Undersheriff Steven Smith told WGRZ-TV.

Medina Central School District Superintendent Jeff Evoy confirmed reports that Elsenheimer was on a list of substitute teachers Tuesday, although the district’s records indicate that he had only “sporadically” substituted at Medina over a three year period that ended in the 2010-11 school year.

Evoy said the district is in communication with Cardone’s office and is in consultation with the school’s legal counsel.

Cardone said that his office has not received any indication that this incident was part of a larger run of criminal sexual activity.

“When these things happen often times others will come forward,” Cardone said. “But in this case, none have.”
