Cop pleads guilty to using sex toy on women during traffic stop
A suburban Cleveland police officer accused of using a sex toy on two women during an illegal traffic stop has pleaded guilty to charges including gross sexual imposition.
East Cleveland Officer Kenneth Bolton Jr., of Middlefield, also pleaded guilty to misdemeanor interfering with civil rights in a plea deal that led prosecutors to drop a kidnapping charge, Cleveland.com reported.
Bolton illegally pulled over two women, aged 22 and 23, in February and used a sex toy he found in the back seat to rub their genitals over their clothing while they were seated in the vehicle, prosecutors said.
Bolton heard about another officer citing the two women over police radio about 30 minutes after he spotted their car and pulled them over, Cleveland.com reported.
Bolton was fired two weeks later after an internal investigation.
The 16-year veteran on the police force must register as a sex offender and will no longer be allowed to work as a police officer.
Sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 16.
