Public Record of Jon Stout

“Until November 2005, Jon Stout was a Logan County Detective employed by the Logan County Sheriff’s Office.

In November 2005, he was accused of having sex with a teen-aged witness in a case.

On November 29, 2005, Sheriff Mike Henry fired Mr. Stout.  All the sordid allegations regarding Stout and the teen-aged girl were published in Central Ohio newspapers.

On January 25, 2006, Jon Stout was indicted in case no. CR-06-01-0018, in the Logan County Common Pleas Court for 2 felony counts of sexual battery (each an F3), and 4 misdemeanors, Public Indecency, Endangering Children, Interference with Custody, Contributing to the Unruliness or Delinquency of a Minor.

That case was dismissed on January 11, 2007.

Mr. Stout was re-indicted with slightly different wording:  Ultimately his defense counsel got the most serious charges dismissed and Stout entered into a plea agreement to a misdemeanor charge of child endangering regarding speeding with the girl in the car. “The defense of these two cases hinged on whether Mr. Stout’s position as a detective/police officer fit the definition of “in loco parentis” in State v. Noggle (1993), 67 Ohio St.3d 31 at 33.”

Case No. 09-2363
