CLEVELAND, OH — A former East Cleveland police officer has pleaded guilty to using a sex toy to abuse two women during an illegal traffic stop in February 2017.

Kenneth Bolton, Jr., 49, admitted to pulling over the two women, who were ages 22 and 23, without proper cause. Bolton then discovered a sex toy in their vehicle, which he has confessed to utilizing while sexually abusing the victims as they sat in the car.

The East Cleveland Police Department fired Bolton two weeks after the incident took place. Bolton’s termination letter states that he admitted to violating “numerous misdemeanor and felony laws.

Bolton’s deal now involves him pleading guilty to felony gross sexual imposition and misdemeanor interfering with civil rights charges. In exchange for the plea, prosecutors dropped a count of kidnapping.

Prior to the traffic stop, Bolton had served 16 years on the force. He has been stripped of his license to be a police officer and is required now to register as a sex offender.
