Ohio Cop Sexually Assaults Women with Sex Toy during Traffic Stop

East Cleveland police officer Kenneth Bolton Jr. had no reason to pull the women over because they had already been cited by another officer 30 minutes earlier.

But he probably heard they were attractive, both of them in their early 20s. And he may have even heard they had a sex toy in the back seat.

Cops tend to get off on these things, so word spreads fast.

The 16-year police veteran then used the sex toy to grope both women between their legs during the February 23 traffic stop.

Now he is not only out of a job, but is facing ten years in prison.

Bolton, who is either 39 or 49 depending on which news source you believe, admitted to the infractions, something cops rarely do.

According to [__Cleveland.com:__](http://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2017/04/east_cleveland_cop_groped_two.html)

> A grand jury has filed charges against an East Cleveland police officer fired last month after he admitted to violating “numerous misdemeanor and felony laws” during a February traffic stop, records say.
> Kenneth Bolton Jr., 39, is charged with two counts each of gross sexual imposition, abduction and interfering with civil rights charges tied to the Feb. 23 traffic stop, according to court records.
> Bolton is accused of groping two women between their legs under threat of force during the stop, according to a copy of the indictment.
> Bolton is set for an April 27 arraignment in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court.
> Bolton, a 16-year veteran of the force, was fired March 3 after an internal investigation.
> A letter of termination from East Cleveland Police Chief Michael Cardilli to Bolton says Bolton made a statement to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office “admitting to numerous misdemeanor and felony laws that you have recently violated.”

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__](http://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2017/03/former_east_cleveland_cop_accu.html) for beating and intimidating a citizen, [__serving prison sentences__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2015/10/13/ohio-cops-rob-drug-dealers-100000/) for ripping off drug dealers, locking citizens in closets for days without food, resulting in [__a $22 million jury award__](http://www.cleveland.com/court-justice/index.ssf/2016/06/east_cleveland_cop_locked_inno.html) or [__just slacking off on video__](http://fox8.com/2017/02/06/officer-being-investigated-after-posting-videos-in-uniform-while-in-patrol-car/) for Instagram while on duty.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.

Please make a donation below or click on side tab to learn more about our mission.
