Ann Arbor man sentenced to between 14 months and two years in prison for groping woman
The Ann Arbor man who admitted to grabbing a woman’s buttocks while walking in the city’s Old West Side will serve between 14 months and two year in prison, according to court officials.
Jeremy Bolen, who was 18 when charged, received his sentence Thursday from Washtenaw County Trial Court Judge David Swartz. Bolen pleaded guilty to one count of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct in December.
The charges stem from an attack on Sept. 26 near the intersection of Third and West Jefferson streets. Bolen told Swartz in December that he followed the woman and “grabbed her butt” due to sexual urges.
Bolen was arrested on the same day as the incident after the victim flagged down a passerby and used their cell phone to call police, according to investigators.
Bolen was previously convicted of assault with intent to commit sexual penetration, according to court records. Police said he attacked a 23-year-old jogger at about 8:40 p.m. on Aug. 20, 2009 near West Washington Street behind Slauson Middle School.
In that incident, Bolen was convicted of attempting to take off the woman’s pants, but she bit one of his fingers and yelled at him, scaring him away.
