A Prince Georges County Firefighter has been found guilty of a felony in Charles County, Maryland.

A Charles County Jury recently found Donald McCoy Stancell, 39 years-of-age and 14-year member of the Department, guilty of child sexual abuse.   The charges stem from incidents while he was off-duty.

The Fire/EMS Department initially placed Stancell, a career firefighter, on administrative duties with limited public contact status.  His administrative duties began in January 2016 when he was initially charged with the crime.  

After being found guilty he was placed on Annual Leave pending an internal review for additional personnel actions.  Stancell has since rendered his resignation.

For additional information about this case, please contact the Charles County State’s Attorney’s Office.
