Feb 8, 2011
A former county employee was in court Tuesday, accused of having sex with a woman whose medication caused her to be mentally and physically incapacitated at the time.
Corey Grumelot, 39, of Greenwood, was arrested Tuesday afternoon, following a South Carolina Law Enforcement Division investigation.
According to warrants, Grumelot drove the 26-year-old victim to a motel in a county vehicle and had sex with her. Grumelot also is accused of driving the woman to a local hospital and providing false information to hospital staff about where and how he met her, the warrants said.
Grumelot is charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct and misconduct.
On Tuesday, bail for Grumelot was set at $20,000.
He was told to have no contact with the victim. He was also asked to surrender his passport due to the nature of the charge.

February 04, 2011
A New Orleans police officer allegedly left his post to have sex with a woman in a seedy motel while on the clock. Weeks later, he was allegedly snoozing in his cruiser, parked at the same motel, and slept through a reported shooting in his assigned area.
He didn't know at the time, but the police were watching.
Officer Carey Dykes, a 13-year NOPD veteran, was terminated for numerous violations, including having sex with a woman while on the clock, disregarding his policework, according to a disciplinary letter issued Thursday by the NOPD.
Former Jackson stripper and her father bound over for trial in sex extortion case
January 27, 2011
A former Jackson stripper and her father were ordered Thursday to stand trial for allegedly pressuring a "lap dance" customer to pay $2,500 after a sexual encounter in a motel.
Jennifer Allan, 24, and her father, David Allan, 50, were bound over for trial on extortion charges after a preliminary examination in Jackson County District Court.
Judge Joseph Filip added charges of conspiracy to commit extortion after testimony from four witnesses.
"Clearly it's a conspiracy with each other," Filip said.
The defendants are accused of collecting $2,500 in three installments from Theodore Bachakes, 25, of Dexter after he was threatened with a false accusation of rape.
Bachakes testified that he was "a regular patron" of Dr. Don's Famous Door, a downtown Jackson strip club. He met Jennifer Allan, a dancer, at the club last summer and often paid her $20 for "lap dances."
On Dec. 17, he testified, they met at Motel 6 and had sex. Afterward, he said, she threatened to accuse him of rape unless he gave her $500. He paid the money that same day.
Later a man identified by police as David Allan called Bachakes and convinced him to pay $1,500 more. A third payment of $500 was made after another contact with David Allan.
When David Allan asked for another $2,500, Bachakes filed a police report.
Teacher Admits to Having Sex with 15-year-old Student
Springfield, MA (WGGB, CBS) -- Lisa Lavoie, a 25-year-old former Holyoke, Massachusetts elementary school teacher was sentenced to five years probation, but no jail time after she admitted having sex with a 15-year-old male student back in February 2009.
Lavoie faced three counts of statutory raped and one count of enticing a child under the age of 16. Lavoie and the student ran off and were later found by the FBI in a motel room in West Virginia.
With its prominent sign advertising rooms for $21 and $23 a night, the Value Motel is a notorious place to easily acquire drugs and sex at discount rates. Located just off of I-5 at the corner of Highway 99 and 78th street, the hotel serves a mix of budget travelers and petty criminals, while remaining a mystery to most county residents.
To get a better picture of the noxious atmosphere of the hotel, I stayed a Saturday night on the paper’s dime.
$38.37, after taxes, was the cheapest available. It was a small non-smoking room that reeked of smoke and other musty scents. The walls were overwhelmed with faded stains and unsuccessful graffiti cover-ups. The bedding was faded, torn and almost clean. The standard issue hotel Bible had torn pages and matched the aesthetics created by the vulgarities scrawled on the desk. The toilet and shower were shared with the adjoining room, whose unseen occupant failed to flush after any of his numerous and strained bowel movements.
One of the hotel’s on-site prostitutes agreed to provide a “quick” adult service to a male guest in exchange for twenty dollars that she immediately used to pay for a heroin hit from a third guest. Such deals are not uncommon according to one of the involved parties.
“I’d rather the cash go between friends than send them elsewhere,” said the man selling the heroin, who identified himself only as “King.”
According to King, he sells over $3,000 of marijuana, meth and heroin a night at the Value, estimates that are suspect considering his badly tattered and faded tie-dyed clothes. King said the hotel’s drug trade is widespread and should be left alone by law enforcement.
Judge refuses to reduce ex-coroner's sex crime conviction
January 19, 2011
MUNCIE -- An ex-Henry County coroner's bid to have his sex-related felony conviction reduced was declared dead on arrival Tuesday by a Delaware County judge.
It's been more than five years since Robert Scott Troxell, at the time Henry County's elected coroner, was arrested after arranging through an Internet chat room to meet a Muncie woman at a motel and pay her $750 to have sex with him while her young children watched.
The woman notified police of Troxell's request, and when the coroner showed up as planned a few days later at a south Muncie motel, carrying $750 in cash, officers were there waiting for him.
Troxell resigned as coroner a few days after the June 2005 arrest.
In July 2006, the former New Castle funeral home director struck a deal with the Delaware County prosecutor's office, pleading guilty to attempted vicarious sexual gratification, a Class D felony.
Then-Circuit Court 5 Judge Wayne Lennington accepted the plea bargain, which called for Troxell to spend three years on probation, including six months on electronic home detention, perform 100 hours of community service and undergo sexual-related counseling.
Troxell was also ordered to register as a sex offender for 10 years.
