Warrant issued for EMT

Friday, July 23, 2010

Jason A. Jordan
Indiana State Police are searching for a male Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) accused of inappropriately touching a female patient while in transport recently.

On Friday, officials issued a warrant for Jason A. Jordan, 27, Terre Haute, on allegations of one count of Sexual Battery, class D felony, and one count of Theft, class D felony.

He had been working for TransCare Ambulance Service in Terre Haute during the alleged incidence.

According to officials, the investigation originated July 12, when a 26-year-old female victim had complained that during transport from St. Vincent Clay Hospital in Brazil, to St. Vincent Clay Hospital, Indianapolis, she was inappropriately touched in private areas of her body and personal photographs stored on her cell phone were sent to another person's cell phone without her authorization.

The victim alleged the lone TransCare Ambulance employee attending to her in medical service area of the ambulance performed the alleged events against her will during the trip.

Since the issuance of the warrant Thursday, ISP Detectives have been unable to locate Jordan and have reason to believe he has fled the state.

Investigators believe Jordan may be with his wife, Jamie Lea Jordan, 22. The couple may be operating a Maroon 2004 Ford Taurus with plate number ZP5542, or a Gray 2006 Ford Mustang with plate number RQ3582.

Anyone with additional information is urged to call the Indiana State Police Post in Putnamville at 812-299-1151.

My heart goes out to the female patient, however Jason is a friend of mine. I am worried about his, his wife's and their infant child's welfare. I did call the ISP and told them what I know about his possible whereabouts because I DO care. I will pray for all concerned.

Thank you, DAGNABBITT for providing information to the police. Let's hope they catch this guy and his wife and kids are unharmed in the process.

Stand up and take your punishment, Jason .. I hope what you did was worth your job and your freedom.

What kind of photos are "personal", and why would you have them stored on your phone.

Well young people do things that are unwise. Back when I had a body that had not gone south yet I had a photo or two I had given to a boyfriend.

CCPed FROM BRAZIL TIMES 7-23-10: "On Friday, ISP officials issued a warrant for Jason A. Jordan, 27, Terre Haute, on allegations of one count of Sexual Battery, class D felony, and one count of Theft, class D felony."

The police do NOT issue warrants, they serve warrants. Warrants are issued by the Prosecuting Attorney.

And a Judge signs them, then they are issued by a court.

-- Posted by I. M. Lee Thall, Esq. on Fri, Jul 23, 2010, at 2:19 PM

That is correct, police give the D.A. the info and then the D.A. obtains a warrant, from the Judge.

Who really cares who issues the warrant. At least they have one for him.

I could be wrong, but I thought I had read somewhere that the photos on her phone were of her in a bikini. Perhaps they were taken when she was boating or sun bathing. Regardless, they were personal and not intended for just anyone to view or steal by sending them to another phone. His behavior is just disgusting. If he does prison time for sexual battery, he'll understand the convict mantra, "Fight or F--k".

-- Posted by Claycountian on Fri, Jul 23, 2010, at 4:02 PM

He looks like he would reallydo that. People like that should go th prison for life.

-- Posted by guesswho27 on Fri, Jul 23, 2010, at 5:55 PM

Truth is that his behavior was noticed by co-workers for several months. It was reported in writing to managers like JOHN MCFARLAND who said he couldn't do anything about it. So the rest of us poor souls that work here have to suffer when the stuff finally hits the fan. Now the citizens out here in Terre Haute think I and every other male employee are child molesters and rapists. Glad we know we are well valued here.

Seems like our county officials need to look into another ambulance service since Trans Care has not lived up to our expectations.... Those who need transported shouldn't have to worry about what kind of people are taking care of us in our time of need!

Right now it's her word against his.. What happened to Innocent until proven guilty? Small town or not, courts decide not gossip..

Don't let the opinions of a few narrow minded cause you to lose respect for your job. people in all professions commit crimes every day. It is just a sad part of society. Just because it is a public service career, does not make it immune of the criminal aspect of the world. Keep doing the good work you do, it is appreciated by the majority.

What she or anyone else has on their phone picture wise is their business! It does not give anyone the right to snoop and send those pictures to their phone or anyone elses without their permission!

I too have pictures on my phone and if someone took it and sent them to someone without my permission....you can bet there would be hell to pay!

There is such thing as privacy! There is such thing as personal property! There are perverts out there...and yes HE IS A PERVERT and NEEDS TO BE PUNISHED and HE IS A SEXUAL OFFENDER!!!!

Red, bet that trailer is hot. There is such a thing as air conditioning, maybe one day you'll be able to afford it.

-- Posted by I. M. Lee Thall, Esq. on Sun, Jul 25, 2010, at 11:06 AM

Ahh!! Don'tchu worry U.R. Annoying I'll be fine. We here in the Trailerhood are right-up-country.We got us one of those there AC's. And it keeps me pretty cool as I listen to your mocking of others.(alone as usual ha?)

ANYWAY,How about that EMT that Sucks ,Guilty or Not? I remember some of the posts on the first article about the service of this company in the first place. It sounds like we all need to remember to give respect to these people that service our fam.means to demand respect from there service of our family. Stand-Up People!!
