SALISBURY, Md. - A Fruitland man has been convicted on sexual assault charges.

On Friday, 67-year-old Bruce Fowler, pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual abuse of minor committed upon two children. Sentencing is expected on April 1st, 2014.

Fowler is a retired paramedic, who was suspended from the Fruitland Volunteer Fire Company in November.

Maciarello commended the Wicomico Child Advocacy Center and its partners, Maryland State Police, Wicomico County Sheriff's Office, Salisbury Police Department, Department of Social Services and Life Crisis Center, for their work in the investigation and prosecution of this case.
