A sexual assault case has reached a plea agreement in Clark County Circuit Court.

A sexual assault case has reached a plea agreement in Clark County Circuit Court.
The case began well over a year ago during a house party. In the midst of the get-together, the victim reportedly became sick, with defendant Jason Lane Moore escorting her to his bedroom.
In the room, the victim reportedly blacked out and woke to find Moore on top of her. He allegedly began messing with her clothes, while the victim was too incoherent to do anything about it. The case’s affidavit further states that the victim declined Moore’s attempt at sexual contact.
What followed consisted of Moore performing acts to warrant an eventual charge of second-degree sexual assault.
Clark County Sheriff Jason Watson interviewed the defendant in January of last year. During the encounter, Moore confirmed that the victim had fallen ill at his party and that he had escorted her to a couch in his bedroom. Moore also allegedly admitted that the victim had declined his proposal for sex. The specifics of what took place were discussed, with Moore confirming parts of it and having a slightly different account of others.
While meeting with Watson, Moore reportedly expressed remorse over what had happened, stating that “he felt terrible for what he did.”
Last Friday, Moore made his plea in the agreement and received four months in the county jail along with 96 months of probation.
A no contact order handed down to Moore has barred him from communicating with the victim in any way. Furthermore, he is not allowed at HSU and banned from possessing any firearms, other weapons or ammunition.
The order will reportedly expire on Sept. 16, 2024. Moore must also pay a total of $2,095.
