The Air Force reservist who pleaded guilty to a Christmas party sex crime at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base was sentenced Wednesday to six years in prison in Dayton’s U.S. District Court.

Kyle Jordan, 32, pleaded guilty 11 months ago to one count of sexual abuse for having sex with an unconscious woman he supervised at a Temporary Lodging Facility (TLF) during a gathering after both drank alcohol the day of a Christmas party two years ago.

Calling Jordan a “danger to the community” who preys on women and shows a “pattern of sexual misconduct,” U.S. District Court Judge Walter Rice said a custodial sentence was needed for punishment and to deter others.

Rice also ordered that Jordan to pay restitution of $1,356.95; that he must perform 100 hours of community service or job training upon release, that he register as a sex offender and undergo sex offender treatment.

Rice ordered Jordan to undergo periodic polygraph examinations, a mental health assessment, surrender his concealed carry permit, take a course in critical thinking skills, undergo intensive monitoring, have limited cell phone use and have no contact with the victim.

Rice allowed Jordan to voluntarily surrender when advised to by the U.S. Bureau of Prisons in the next 20 to 40 days. He will remain on electronic monitoring.

Jordan’s attorney Brock Schoenlein has said his client “doesn’t remember what he is alleged to have done” and therefore he didn’t lie to investigators.

At a previous hearing this month, the victim who was younger than 21 at the time of the incident mockingly thanked Jordan for her anxiety, major depression, voices in her head that won’t go away, suicidal thoughts and that she no longer likes Christmas parties.

A plea agreement Jordan had with prosecutors stipulated a sentence from community control up to 87 months (7¼ years) in exchange for other charges to be dismissed. The statutory maximum sentence for committing this federal crime is up to life in prison.

Dameron will be facing additional charges as a result of this arrest, Wilson said.

Kazia M. Dehart, 30, who was with Dameron, was arrested on outstanding warrants, police said.

Dameron fled in a vehicle Jan. 5 when Greene County Sheriff’s deputies tried to stop him on U.S. 35 E. He was a suspect in a gun-related incident in Riverside.

Police found the vehicle idling with a child inside on North Richard Drive. Dameron had been baby-sitting the child, who was not hurt.

‘Bad timing. Real bad:’ 2 illegally enter building with K-9 training nearby

Police chief saw them breaking into closed hotel

When the Middletown police chief and two new City Council were having lunch Wednesday on the fourth floor of the City Building, they noticed through a window that it appeared two subjects were climbing a fire escape and entering a window on the upper floors of the former Manchester Inn.

So Chief Rodney Muterspaw, who was meeting with council members Joe Mulligan and Ami Vitori, called police dispatch to report the suspicious activity at the hotel that closed seven years ago.

As the two suspects were illegally trying to enter the Manchester Inn, the police department’s K-9 team was training along with eight agencies of the Southwest Regional K-9 Training Team at the city’s K-9 training center near the Middletown Regional Airport.

“Bad timing,” Muterspaw said with a laugh. “Real bad.”

Middletown’s K-9 officers Bear, Chase and Koda, along with dogs from the other police agencies, entered the building, said Officer Ryan Morgan, Chase’s handler. Morgan said there were 11 dogs stationed in and around the Manchester Inn.

“Dogs were barking everywhere,” Morgan said.

While Morgan and Chase were on the second floor, Chase, a 4-year-old German shepherd, indicated he smelled human scent, Morgan said. When they found the subjects hiding in a hotel room, Chase “showed force” and the subjects quickly surrendered, Morgan said.

Morgan said there is “no better training than real life scenarios.”

Nicholas Tsakeris, 18, and a juvenile were charged with criminal trespass, police said.

UPDATE @ 6 p.m.

Charges have been dropped against a juvenile, but an 18-year-old Springfield resident remains accused of shooting a man in the chest last week.

Elrashawn T. Dover, pleaded not guilty during his arraignment Sunday in Clark County Municipal Court. His bond was set at $250,000 and a public defender was appointed. He also was ordered to have no contact with the victim, should he post bail.

The victim was stepping out of his car shortly after 2 p.m. Jan. 8 in the 300 block of West Grand Avenue in Springfield. He told police he heard gunfire and then felt a gunshot to his chest, according to court documents. 

"He said he grabbed his chest and could see blood on his hand," police say in court records. 

The victim's brother then drove him to the Springfield Regional Medical Center, where he was treated for a gunshot wound to the right side of his chest and was expected to recover, police said.

Court records showed the victim identified Dover as the shooter after reviewing a photo lineup.

Dover already was in the Clark County Jail on several unrelated charges.

Springfield police also arrested last week a male juvenile who a witness identified as involved in the shooting and booked him into juvenile detention on an attempted murder charge, according to court records. 

Clark County prosecutors requested to dismiss the charges against the teen, which the juvenile judge granted. 

"Right now everything is looking and pointing toward (Dover) and we dismissed at this point to give us more time to make sure whether the juvenile is involved or not," Clark County Assistant Prosecutor Bill Merrell said. "We don't know that yet."

FIRST REPORT

The victim was stepping out of his car in the 300 block of West Grand and heard gunshots and then felt a gunshot to his chest, court documents read.

Springboro teacher’s criminal case headed back to trial

Springboro teacher’s criminal case headed back to trial

A judge today denied a Springboro teacher facing criminal charges in a drug case also involving her son treatment in lieu of conviction during a hearing in Warren County Common Pleas Court.

Amy Panzeca, 48, of Springboro, is facing charges of permitting drug abuse, contributing to the unruliness of a minor and endangering children in Warren County Common Pleas Court.

Judge Donald Oda II denied the motion for lack of evidence that Panzeca’s alleged drinking problem contributed to her permitting drug abuse in her home.

The case stems from traffic stops last year by Springboro police and a raid last May by the Warren County Drug Task Force of the Panzeca home in the Settlers Walk community in Springboro.

In December, her son, now 16, was sentenced to 30 more days in the local detention center as part of his sentence in Warren County Juvenile Court after pleading no contest to charges of trafficking in drugs and possession of controlled substances.

He got credit for 15 days already spent in detention, but was ordered to complete an in-patient treatment program.

Panzeca is accused of converting her son’s money, including a birthday gift, to Bitcoin, which he used to buy LSD, some of which he sold to about 20 Springboro students.

In December, Oda found an oral motion by Panzeca’s lawyer “to be well-taken, in part” and ordered the long-time teacher be examined.

Her lawyer, Andrea Ostrowski, filed a motion that said: “Drug or alcohol usage by the defendant was a factor leading to the instant offense.”

Offenders granted treatment in lieu of conviction must abstain from drugs and alcohol for 12 months, take part in treatment programs and submit to random testing in order to complete the diversion program. It also can include community service and financial restitution.

If offenders complete the program, the court dismisses the original charges and can potentially seal the records related to the case.

Since August, Panzeca has been free on her own recognizance, pending trial. She had been pressing for the identity of confidential informants in the case and suppression of statements made to police.

Oda delayed all other proceedings in the case, pending outcome of todays’s hearing. A suppression hearing is to be scheduled next in the case.
