East Cleveland Cop Gets 6 Months in Prison For Assaulting Women With Sex Toy During Traffic Stop

CLEVELAND, Ohio — A former East Cleveland police officer was sentenced to six months in prison Monday for using a sex toy to sexually assault two women during a traffic stop.

Kenneth Bolton Jr., 50, also lost his license as a police officer and was ordered to register as a sex offender when he was convicted in the Feb. 23 incident, prosecutors said.

Bolton pleaded guilty last month to gross sexual imposition, a fourth-degree felony, and interfering with civil rights, a first-degree misdemeanor, in the traffic stop. Cuyahoga County prosecutors dropped kidnapping charges in exchange for the guilty plea.

Judge Nancy R. McDonnell sentenced Bolton to six months in prison on the felony charge and six months in county jail on the misdemeanor charge, but those sentences will be served concurrently at the Lorain Correctional Institution, a bailiff for McDonnell’s courtroom said.

Bolton’s attorney, Fernando Mack, could not immediately be reached for comment Monday afternoon.

Bolton stopped two women, ages 23 and 22, on Euclid Avenue at Lee Road and found a sex toy in their car, prosecutors said. He used it to sexually assault them as they sat in the car, prosecutors said.

Bolton, a 16-year veteran police officer, was fired within two weeks of the traffic stop. He made a statement to prosecutors “admitting to numerous misdemeanor and felony laws that you have recently violated,” East Cleveland police Chief Michael Cardilli wrote in Bolton’s termination letter.
