A former Wausau firefighter accused of sexually assaulting a female patient in an ambulance wants an out-of-county jury for his upcoming trial. 33-year-old Clifford "CJ" Heiser argues he cannot get a fair trial with a Marathon County jury. In court filings he is also raising questions about the woman's memory and credibility and contends key evidence against him was obtained illegally. Heiser is charged with two felonies - third-degree sexual assault and misconduct in office - and two counts of misdemeanor fourth-degree sexual assault in the Sept. 12 incident. Heiser resigned from the fire department after the allegations. He has pled 'not guilty'.
