Cleveland Cop Sexually Assaults Women with Sex Toy during Traffic Stop

According to PINAC News, Officer Kenneth Bolton Jr., a 16-year police veteran in the East Cleveland police department, pulled over a woman who was already cited by another officer 30 minutes earlier on February 23rd.

Officer Bolton admitted to using a sex toy to grope both women between their legs.

According to Cleveland.com:

A grand jury has filed two counts each of gross sexual imposition, abduction and interfering with civil rights charges against Officer Bolton. He was fired March 3rd after an internal investigation and him admitting to violating “numerous misdemeanor and felony laws” during the stop, records say.

Accoring to PINAC News,

East Cleveland, a suburb of Cleveland in Cuyahoga County, has a population of less than 20,000 people, so its police department is not very large, especially considering it is a poor town with a low budget.

So apparently, they are forced to scrape the bottom of the barrel when it comes to hiring police officers, even more so than the neighboring Cleveland Police Department, which also tends to do the same.

That is evident by the fact that several other East Cleveland cop are either awaiting trial for felony charges for beating and intimidating a citizen, serving prison sentences for ripping off drug dealers, locking citizens in closets for days without food, resulting in a $22 million jury award or just slacking off on video for Instagram while on duty.

Multiple officers with the East Cleveland Police Department have been charged with crimes in the last few years. In 2016, three drug detectives were sentenced to federal prison after investigators found they filed false search warrants and kept seized money from suspected drug dealers.

Former Sgt. Torris Moore and detectives Antonio Malone and Eric Jones were sentenced to between 46 months in prison to nine years, with the most severe penalty being reserved for Moore, a supervisor who masterminded the scheme.

Since then, prosecutors have started the process to drop charges in over 40 cases that the detectives investigated.

Two other officers — Denayne Davidson-Dixon and Gerald Spencer II– were charged in September with kidnapping, felonious assault, conspiracy and other lesser offenses stemming from a July 24 incident.

The two are accused of driving Jesse Nickerson, 28, to Forest Hills Park, stripping him and attacking him. The officers arrested Nickerson on suspicion of possessing a stolen gun, but those charges were dropped.

In June, a jury awarded a Maple Heights man $22 million for a 2012 traffic stop during which he was punched by an East Cleveland police officer and locked in a storage closet for four days without food, water or access to a toilet. The Ohio Supreme Court in September declined to hear East Cleveland’s appeal of the case.
