WARSAW — Jonathon D. Crosson was sentenced on Count 1, sexual misconduct with a minor, a level 5 felony, in Superior Court 1.
Jonathon D. Crosson, 21, 2039 S. CR 900W, Larwill, was arrested in July 2015 for sexual misconduct with a minor in South Whitley and Kosciusko Counties.
Crosson was volunteering as an assistant to the soccer coach at Whitko Middle School when he first met a 14-year-old female on the team. He was not employed by Whitko School Corporation. In October 2014, Crosson began attending the female victim’s church, at which time she alleged the relationship became intimate.
According to the probable cause affidavit, in January 2015, Crosson and the female went to his residence where Crosson proceeded to have various sex acts/intercourse with the female. On July 15, 2015, Crosson reportedly went to her residence in Kosciusko County and performed sexual acts.
Crosson’s attorney, Jay Rigdon, asked the judge to take into consideration Crosson’s Whitley County sentencing for charges of sexual misconduct involving the same victim. In February 2016, the South Whitely County Judge James Heuer sentenced Crosson to 10 years, with one year suspended, on two Level 3 child molesting charges, serving the sentences concurrently. In addition, Crosson received four years, with one year suspended, for a level 5 child molesting with a different victim.
Rigdon stated that the time Crosson had already received was due punishment for crimes committed at 19-20 years of age.
Crosson entered a plea agreement pleading guilty to Count 1, sexual misconduct with a minor, a level 5 felony. He was sentenced to four years at the Indiana Department of Corrections and granted 466 days jail time credit.
