A carnival worker and convicted sex offender accused of inappropriately touching a teenage girl after giving her friend marijuana was indicted Friday by a Huron County grand jury.

Of the 15 people indicted, three are accused of crimes involving minors.

Jason J. Conley, 32, of Fremont, is charged with gross sexual imposition, which is punishable by six to 18 months behind bars. The suspected Aug. 14 incident happened during the Huron County Fair and was investigated by Huron County Sheriff's Detective John Harris and Sgt. Chuck Summers.

Conley was approached by two 16-year-old Huron County girls who asked him if he knew where they could buy some marijuana, Huron County Sheriff's Capt. Ted Patrick said. Conley told the girls what time he would be on break and arranged to meet the girls, Patrick said.

The suspect and girls went to an area under the ride where he worked and gave the victim's friend "a very small amount" of marijuana, Patrick said. The second girl then left the area, but waited nearby for the other girl.

About three minutes later, the friend saw the victim come out of the ride area "visibly upset," Patrick said.

"He (Conley) had inappropriate, unsolicited sexual contact with her," Patrick said. "They reported it to an adult and they contacted Children Services."

Huron County Children Services then notified the sheriff's office.

A story about all of the recent indictments was published in Saturday's Reflector.



he looks upstanding to me. could be the prez's son,if he had one..

hit the road jack

Kinda resembles him doesn't he.


Omg! I knew Coolio was going to end up on drugs!!!


My qustion is why is a convicted sex offender working for the carnival?


lol- Let's see... on line 4a of the carnie application for employment, it states- NAHHH.. Only qualification to be a carnie, have a pulse- and be genetically tied to pond scum.


So these two girls approach him, ask him about drugs, get drugs from him, then one leaves the other alone with him? Not condoning his behavior at all, but GIRLS, COME ON! Are you that stupid? You do all this, and then how dare the guy put his hands on you? Again, not saying he was in any way right here, but geez, if these girls put themselves in that situation, what did they expect to happen?


why yes- indeed. that would be classified as stupid as F*#&. Talk about lack of judgement. I wouldn't let my dog talk to this guy, let alone my daughter. Hide ya wife, hide ya kids. HuCo Fair is a scuzz fest.


Gees......I usually have buy a girl a few rounds before she gets that careless! Oh, and her friend.........terrible c-blocker!


What is the chance the girls offered this guy something and then got scared and backed out? And if they didn't why would they meet him under a ride and think everything would be great? Take a look at this guy. Norwalk fair has alway been full of scum and bottom feeders.
