A man convicted of a felony sex crime against a 4-year-old girl has been elected to his second term as chief of a Pennsylvania town's volunteer fire department, The Corry Journal reports.

Roger Gilbert Jr. tells NBC affiliate WICU that he is stepping down, effective immediately, after receiving backlash and death threats.

Fire Chief Roger Gilbert Jr., who heads the Spartansburg volunteer fire company, pleaded guilty to "involuntary deviate sexual intercourse" in 2001 after forcing the toddler to perform oral sex on him, The Corry Journal reported Saturday.

"That was 20 years ago", he said of the crime. I've changed my life for the better. "I shouldn't be punished for the rest of my life".

Wagner said she and the volunteer firefighting department are aware of Gilbert's history.
