While already under electronic monitoring for a previous abduction case, 20-year-old Cody Lee Jackson, of Norwood, Ohio, was recently arrested for allegedly raping and impregnating a 14-year-old girl over four months while keeping her against her will. While under house arrest during the initial abduction investigation Jackson allegedly took it upon himself to have a 14-year-old girl he met on Facebook to come to his house.
Authorities gave this account of what happened next:
He asked to meet her and arranged to have a taxi pick her up.
He arranged for taxi trips almost every other day for three weeks because the monitoring didn’t allow him to leave his home. He had sex with the teen during each visit.
He took control of the girl’s social media and email and bought her a phone to use. He also created rules for her to follow.
In March, the teen visited and wasn’t allowed to leave.
That’s not all. From Deseret News…
He reportedly disallowed the girl from leaving the apartment unless she was with him or had his permission. Jackson also forbade the girl from using the restroom, showering, eating or contacting her family without his permission, according to his charges.
The girl was also reportedly told not to refuse sex with Jackson, make eye contact with or talk to other men, sing or hum songs sung by men, sleep while Jackson was awake or look outside any windows or doors. Jackson allegedly required the girl to bathe him as well.
Jackson abused the victim verbally and physically when she didn’t follow those rules and had sex with her almost every day despite her many objections, court records say. The abuse reportedly lessened but didn’t stop after he found out she was pregnant with his child.
Investigators say that Jackson brought in a 20-year-old woman to keep an eye on the girl for him when he was outside of the home. When is electric monitoring was removed Jackson fled the state before being arrested in Utah. The woman and the girl escaped a day after he left to make sure he wasn’t returning.
I know you’re asking, as am I, why was the girl allowed to be gone from the home for so long without being reported missing. As of right now that information has not been reported so please hold off on commenting about that for now. However I do have to ask why this was allowed to happen while he was under house arrest? Was the home not being routinely visited to make sure he was abiding my the terms of his monitoring? I’m sure at least one of those terms was to not keep 14-year-old girls hostage while raping them. Between this assclown and the serial Facebook stalker it appears that Ohio is turning into what Connecticut used to be for MySpace.
Parents, talk to your kids about predators like this. Tell them that if any ‘man’ wants them to come over it’s never for anything good.
