East Cleveland police officer Kenneth Bolton Jr. had no reason to pull the women over because they had already been cited by another officer 30 minutes earlier.

But he probably heard they were attractive, both of them in their early 20s. And he may have even heard they had a sex toy in the back seat.

Cops tend to get off on these things, so word spreads fast.

The 16-year police veteran then used the sex toy to grope both women between their legs during the February 23 traffic stop.

Now he is not only out of a job, but is facing ten years in prison.

Bolton, who is either 39 or 49 depending on which news source you believe, admitted to the infractions, something cops rarely do.

According to Cleveland.com:

A grand jury has filed charges against an East Cleveland police officer fired last month after he admitted to violating “numerous misdemeanor and felony laws” during a February traffic stop, records say.

Kenneth Bolton Jr., 39, is charged with two counts each of gross sexual imposition, abduction and interfering with civil rights charges tied to the Feb. 23 traffic stop, according to court records.

Bolton is accused of groping two women between their legs under threat of force during the stop, according to a copy of the indictment.

Bolton is set for an April 27 arraignment in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court.

Bolton, a 16-year veteran of the force, was fired March 3 after an internal investigation.

A letter of termination from East Cleveland Police Chief Michael Cardilli to Bolton says Bolton made a statement to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office “admitting to numerous misdemeanor and felony laws that you have recently violated.”

East Cleveland, a suburb of Cleveland in Cuyahoga County, has a population of less than 20,000 people, so its police department is not very large, especially considering it is a poor town with a low budget.

So apparently, they are forced to scrape the bottom of the barrel when it comes to hiring police officers, even more so than the neighboring Cleveland Police Department, which also tends to do the same.

That is evident by the fact that several other East Cleveland cop are either awaiting trial for felony charges for beating and intimidating a citizen, serving prison sentences for ripping off drug dealers, locking citizens in closets for days without food, resulting in a $22 million jury award or just slacking off on video for Instagram while on duty.
