Jay. V. Caldwell
BOWLING GREEN — A former Troy Township firefighter who was accused of sexual misconduct with teenage girls involved in the department’s Junior Explorer Program was indicted this week on new charges.
Jay V. Caldwell, 26, of Luckey, Ohio, was indicted for kidnapping, gross sexual imposition, engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity, and two counts each of complicity to rape and complicity to gross sexual imposition.
In May, Wood County Common Pleas Judge Reeve Kelsey dismissed 12 of the 18 charges Mr. Caldwell was first indicted on last year including three counts of rape, saying the indictment contained overly broad timeframes and inconsistent facts.
