Four Cops Involved in Rape and Sodomy of Under Age Girl: Report

 

A police officer indicted by a grand jury of rape and sodomy of a minor has pleaded guilty to lesser charges in order to avoid a trial.

It all started when Kentucky-resident Jasmine Lindsey decided to inform the department of an unusual relationship.
She found it very odd that her friends’ 15-year-old daughter used to hang out with former state trooper 32-year-old Stratford Young.

The whistleblower adds the girl’s mother knew of the liaison and was not comfortable with it.

Lindsey says the pair met almost every night of the week and she saw them engage in sexual acts.

According to her, the girl was hopelessly in love and Young promised her that he would wait until she was old enough to declare their relationship.

During this time the reluctant mother allowed another police officer to come and hang out with the two. Lindsey says it all ended up becoming a “big party house”.

In June 2013 she decided it was time to report the matter.


This is when she raised a red flag with the authorities. She says she lost her friend and it has caused her a lot of agony, not only does she suffer from emotional health issues, but also heart hurt problems.

However, for what it was worth a further in-depth investigation ensued following her tip-off.

The elaborate scrutiny incorporated 148 pieces of evidence, which included: cell phone records, interviews – both audio and video, and several photographs.

The girl and her parents were also interviewed.

She also had to undergo drug tests and the results are included in the data.

Three months later Young was fired.

Along with him three other officers also lost their jobs.

One of the men, Chris Woosley resigned; it is still unclear whether the other two, Jerry Clanton and Todd Matti, left out of their own volition or were discharged by the department.

Disturbingly, all four ex-cops were accused of having a sexual relationship with the same girl.

Clanton says he did not know that she was underage.

Young requested to get his job back after being fired, but his appeal was denied. He also tried to have the case dismissed, stating that a police officer is not “a person of the party opposition of special trust” under the Kentucky Statute.

Six months later, in March 2014, a Meade County grand jury indicted Young and Matti for rape and sodomy.

The former pleaded not guilty to these accusations. Matti’s trial is scheduled for April 2016 and Young is set to appear in court for sentencing in November this year.

Last month Young’s attorney asked the court to dismiss his indictment citing selective prosecution.

On October 1, Judge Bruce Butler suggested that Young should spend two years in prison on each count of rape followed by a five-year period of probation, but his sentence will be decided on November 19.

However, Young decided to plead guilty to lesser charges. He admitted to three counts of unlawful transaction with a minor in the second-degree.

His attorney Kenton Smith has recommended that he should serve no jail time and should be given a sentence of two years on each charge running concurrently with five years of probation.

“He’s made mistakes and he’s paid a heavy price.

He’s lost his career and his home. The outcome is bittersweet for everybody. No one is happy with this situation. I think it was the best result for all concerned. A trial would’ve been messy and difficult for all concerned,” he further commented.

Smith says Matti’s case should not be affected by Young’s plea deal.

The prosecutor’s office is yet to make a decision on the case of the other two accused officers.

      15 year old girl sleeps with 4 cops, her and her parent’s do nothing in response.

      Takes two (or… 5) to tango. Not saying she isn’t the victim but it doesn’t sound like she was entirely unhappy with the situation prior to getting busted.

    The last sentence in the story “does not have to register as a sex offender”. WTF??

    Teens sext each other when both 15 and they have to register.

    • Miles to Code

      Agreed that it’s ridiculous that he doesn’t have to register as a sex offender but the teen thing may vary by state since age of consent laws aren’t consistent among all the states.

      • robble

        Sexting laws between teens is not about consent. It’s about child porn.

      • Jason Smith

        If he isn’t being required to register as a sex offender (per SORA laws – look it up if you don’t know what I am talking about) then he is getting special treatment because he is a cop, not because of the age of the individual he had sex with. I am currently facing a charge for touching someone who was definitely an adult and even with a plea deal I have been told I would probably have to register as a sex offender. Please understand that I did not have sex with the person accusing me, nor did I touch the person in any inappropriate places. She just told police that I did things to her that never happened. This guy actually has sex with a minor and may not have to register. Tell me that is not blue privilege.

  • Michael Fuson

    under the law if someone is under 18 and the other over 18 its rape, but since a cop did it I guess its only a minor crime you know like not wearing a seat belt.

    • Nick Best

      The federal legal age of consent is 16. Otherwise it differs from state to state. Most states like Kentucky it’s 16. While here in Wisconsin it’s 18.

    Aw, come on. It’s not his fault that he is more comfortable around his intellectual equal. Maybe he is the product of fetal alcohol syndrome, or a simple inability to pay attention in Algebra. We really have to start treating our retards better. It’s nice to give them uniforms, that way we know where they’re at, and, most of the time, what they are doing… but come on, we gotta keep the camera’s rolling, we all know what Lenny did to those puppy’s, when there was nobody around to go upside his big dumb head.
