A registered sex offender has pleaded guilty to forcing another girl to have sexual contact with him.
At a hearing this week, Jordan Blade Boldman, 22, of North Lewisburg pleaded guilty to one count of gross sexual imposition, stemming from an incident involving a 16-year-old girl at Eljer Park. Originally, Boldman was charged with rape, assault and kidnapping. As part of a plea agreement, prosecutors agreed to amend the rape charge to gross sexual imposition and drop the other charges.
Boldman is set to be sentenced in February. Boldman could face as many as 18 months in prison, with a $5,000 fine. Judge Don Fraser ordered a pre-sentence investigation and for him to be evaluated for admission to a community based correctional facility in Cincinnati. He said that if a bed in that center came available before the sentencing date, the process would likely be expedited, “so that Mr. Boldman can take advantage of an earlier bed date.”
Boldman is already a registered sex offender as a result of a 2019 unlawful sexual contact with a minor conviction in Champaign County. As part of his sentence on that case, Boldman is not allowed to have contact with minors.
About 3:29 p.m., Feb. 14, Marysville Police were contacted about people having sex inside a white, Chrysler 300 parked by the basketball court at Eljer Park. When police arrived, they found Boldman and the 16-year-old girl inside the vehicle.
Video from Eljer Park shows the car was parked for about 14 minutes before police arrived.
The girl initially told police that she didn’t know what happened, then said Boldman kissed her.
According to court documents, the day of the incident, the girl told her brother that Boldman had sexually touched her. She told her brother that “she told Jordan Boldman ‘no’ multiple times.”
“(The victim) had injuries to include thumbprints around her neck and hip region, bruises on her stomach, right breast and back, and a scratch on the front of her neck,” according to court documents. “Further, (the victim) had a golf ball sized bump on the back of her had that hurt to the touch. This caused her dizziness, balance problems, headache, nausea and memory loss.”
According to court documents, the brother took pictures of the injuries and stayed up through the night with his sister, “as he was concerned for her head injury and a possible concussion.”
The girl eventually told investigators that Feb. 14 was the first time she had ever met Boldman and while he wanted to “do sexual things in his car” she told him “no.” According to court documents, the girl told investigators that despite what she said, Boldman “forced himself on her.” She said that he continued “causing pain.”
The girl said Boldman put his hands around her neck and pulled her hair. She said she was “confused about what all happened and how she got the contusion on the back of her head.”
She said the day of the incident, she had been confused.
The girl was taken to Nationwide Children’s Hospital to be examined.
According to court documents, Boldman had been communicating with the girl though a social media app. During the first conversation, the girl told Boldman she was 16 years old. She asked how old he was, but he did not tell her.
Investigators got permission to look though the girl’s phone.
Boldman was arrested and taken to Tri-County Jail on a probation violation. A search of Boldman’s phone revealed a sexually explicit video of Boldman and a “young girl,” though the girl’s face cannot be seen.
Investigators also allegedly found online conversations with other girls.
