(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested after he held a young girl hostage in his home while on house arrest in relations to a previous abduction case.
20-year-old Cody Lee Jackson of Ohio, raped and impregnated the teenager while wearing an electronic monitoring device in connection with the previous kidnapping case, according to court records.
Jackson was arrested in a Greyhound station in Salt Lake City, Utah, on federal charges of producing child pornography and coercion and enticement of a minor to engage in illegal sexual activity.
Police said that Jackson contacted the 14-year-old girl on Facebook, just months after he was arrested on charges of custodial interference, kidnapping and abduction in a separate case in Blue Ash, Ohio, according to the affidavit.
In this first case, he allegedly kidnaped an adult and a minor. He was accused of keeping them against their will in a hotel room.
He pleaded not guilty in the earlier case, and was allowed to go home, but he was ordered to wear a GPS ankle monitor under the supervision of the sheriff’s office.
Mike Robison, a spokesperson for the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, said that officers conducted at least 6 unscheduled and unannounced home visits to Jackson’s home. “He complied with all his conditions and he did everything he was required to do,” Robison said.
While Jackson lived in a rented apartment that belongs to his father, he contacted the 14-year-old girl on Facebook and had a taxi bring her to his house, where they had sex.
The secret meetings continued for weeks. Then Jackson became controlling and abusive. He destroyed the victim’s phone and change the passwords to her Facebook and email accounts as a way to control her, according to court documents.
Jackson later arranged for the taxi to bring the girl to his house after school every day, and he imposed strict rules on the child. She was verbally and physically abused when the rules were broken.
The abuse was brought to light after the girl became pregnant. Jackson fled his home, but he was arrested.
