Jason Jordan
PUTNAM COUNTY--The male Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) accused of recently touching a female patient inappropriately during a recent medical transport to an Indianapolis hospital is in custody.

According to information provided by the Indiana State Police Putnamville Post, Jason A. Jordan, 27, formerly of Terre Haute, turned himself in to the Putnam County Sheriff's Department around 1 p.m., Thursday.

Currently incarcerated at the Putnam County Jail without bond, Jordan is awaiting formal arraignment on charges of two class D felonies, including sexual misconduct and theft.

Allegations of misconduct against Jordan surfaced July 12, when an unidentified 26-year-old female patient filed an official report with the Indianapolis Metro Police Department about what happened during a two-hour medical transport provided by Terre Haute-based TransCare Ambulance Service.

The victim reported that Jordan, while alone in the back of the ambulance with the patient, inappropriately touched private areas of her body and sent personal photographs stored on her cell phone to another cell phone without her permission.

Although officials released information they believed Jordan left Indiana last week, no information was released concerning his whereabouts for the past few days.

Officials confirmed the United States Marshals Fugitive Task Force assisted during the investigation and no further information will be released to protect the integrity of the ongoing investigation.

yep Jason, God is in control... Id start worrying if i was you! Plenty of people in prison love to touch guys like you!

If "God" is in control of Jason .. he would have encouraged him to be a professional, instead of a skeevy perv who takes advantage of patients.

He'll be considered "the perdiest man I ever saw" when he gets convicted and sent to prison. Karma's a b*tch Jason.

I really hope there's more to this story, like alien mind control or some other excuse. I really hate to think my elderly mother or sister or daughter or aunt might have been in that TransCare ambulance that night.

He has a wife and CHILD at home , And did the wife go with him while he was per say in hiding. I'd would of turned my husband if it was him. and filed for devorce. Glad he is where he is suppose to be.

i bet if we new who the girl was and her past history and finances public may not be so judging, i'm not say he is not guilty i dont know i was not there. but how do we know that it wasn't some crazy girl trying to get money out of trans-care. because if he is found guilty or pleas out then she can sue transcare.

I don't know either party involved. There are always two sides to every story. If he did what he is accused of, then he should be punished. If she is lying (stranger things have happened!) then she should be punished.

If he did not do anything wrong, WHY would he RUN, and HIDE?

How would he even know he was in trouble?

If I did not do anything, I would be right up there filing charges against, for false informing.

Wow I cant beleive the incredible mindset of all you so called people . First of all you already have him convicted and executed so now ask yourself what happened to our constitution and bill of rights ;did you already forget them as maybe you was perhaps being a perv or something else in school instead of learning about what our troops are fighting for,or maybe you are a taliban or al quaida , maybe we should ship you over there since thats all you think of the bill of rights and constitution because you had already judged this man without all the evidence before you at hand. In my personal opinion i would hate to call you a fellow american after everything you have said and done from your posts on here. JUst maybe you need to look at one another when your in church sunday and think of what the lord has said and follow by his believes instead of being a typical clay county Hypocrite who goes to church and doesnt follow the lords teachings. I'm just glad there is still a few people with sense left in the country,wished there was more of you god bless our troops fighting for our rights that some dont know that exist

heavy:

He did not run and hide. He was previously scheduled to go out of state. He went several days before the warrant was filed. He walked into the Putnam County Sheriff's Department and they were not even expecting him. Was that hiding?

When I stated earlier that God is in Control, I meant it. It's just that Satan is also with us all the time, working to defeat what God has done. Stop being so judgemental and we'll see what happens. If he is, indeed guilty, then he will rightfully pay for his sins.

If he has repented, he is forgiven.

CITIZEN .. speaking only for myself, my comments are an OPINION, based on what has been reported, and it seems not only did his partner confirm this happened, but the female victim as well.

I'll concede that FIREMEDIC may be right .. we don't know the victim's background or motive, if there is one .. but I don't feel she's lying in this instance.

It's SO easy to blame Satan for something man has done, because it relieves us of accountability.

The truth will come out, eventually. If the female involved is lying .. I'll have an opinion about that, as well.

I'm waiting until I hear the whole story. Only hearing one side of it at this time.

-- Posted by th1953 on Fri, Jul 30, 2010, at 8:45 PM

If he touched her or not is bad enough, but he admitted (to a neighbor, which was aired on WTHI) that he took pictures off her phone. That in itself is an invasion of privacy and cause for criminal charges. Personally the girls background has nothing to do with it. My only question about her would be, what was her physical ailment in that ambulance? Because if he touched me or took my phone he would of been the one that need an ambulance!

-- Posted by lifehasitsmoments on Sat, Jul 31, 2010, at 10:51 AM

OMG.....WTF...Come on people the other employee verified her story here!

Her background and her insurance coverage has NOTHING to do with what he did here!

Simple as that! He did wrong! Shame on him!

If she so chooses to sue...then so be it! Jealous or what? She has every right to sue! Hell I would sue too!

Yes the devil is with us all every day as the heavenly father is also. Yes he can ask for forgiveness and with all sincerity...he will be given it also, but he will also have to pay with what the law chooses to give him as a punishment also.

Don't make excuses for him, when not only did the victim accuse but also the other employee verified and her story and turned him in before she got to do it first....and now we read he bragged to friends and neighbors about the pics?....COME ON NOW!

I'm curious sometimes if"SOME" of you Brazil Citizens actually live in the real world.This town and others I'm sure are full of perps.They are anyone from your brother,friend or an old lady in the country sellin Meth. And as for the weirdo that groped the lady when she's on her way to a major hospital issue. I'm thinking your outlook would be a little different if it were you daughter.He is one sick pup(sorry to insult dogs). But again I'd like to remind you people when this first happened there were people talking about that companys care.This guy is behind bar.But keep your eye on the crappy service this company was putting out also. I'd love for those people to weight in again.

Are you saying that the police arrest innocent people? looking back on past post's it seems that you have been accused yourself of being a police officer. That's weird, One would think that you would be on their side.

-- Posted by I<3pwnage on Sun, Aug 1, 2010, at 8:25 AM

The act of groping another while you have the upper hand in a situation tells a lot about one's frame of mind. This guy has a sense of entitlement to do such an act and lacks common compassion. To with hold the cell phone from the victim when she requested it, by lying saying it was up front, is another issue. Then producing the phone and stealing the pictures is unbelievable. So we have a sexual predator without a conscience who lies and steals. Do you think this is the first time he's done any of this?

-- Posted by Claycountian on Sun, Aug 1, 2010, at 9:19 AM

LLAMAMAN, I don't believe this is his first time. I think he got by with 'casual groping' (chest area) and decided to push the envelope, so to speak.

You're right .. bad enough he inappropriately touched a patient, but even WORSE, he sent personal photos of her to his own personal email! (For those who ask WHY she had photos of herself on her phone - because she has that right!)

He was in a position of authority and in a profession where EMT/Nurses/Doctors/Medics don't see their patients as sexual objects. He took advantage of this woman (IMO) and proceeded to gloat about it to friends.

The only justice to this victim (and the others who convinced themselves his 'touching' was their imagination, and didn't come forward) would be to put him away for a long time.

-- Posted by Emmes on Sun, Aug 1, 2010, at 10:31 AM

What does IMO mean Emmes?

I totally agree with Emmes....I don't believe it was his first time either. I also agree with firemedic. You just never know what people are capable of or how low they will stoop sometimes. Just sayin'........

PROUD .. it means "In MY Opinion". ; )

Thanks Emmes....I really couldn't figure it out! Have a great day.
