On November 8, 2022, at approximately 1929 hours, DEPUTY JUSTIN MCCLAIN was dispatched and responded code 1 to 1000 Detention Dr. Clarkesville, GA (Sheriff’s Office) in reference to a sexual assault on a juvenile.

Upon arrival, MCCLAIN made contact with [REDACTED BY AGENCY] and [REDACTED BY AGENCY] stated she needed to file a report against JACOB STAPLETON (offender) for touching [REDACTED BY AGENCY] inappropriately and trying to have sex with her. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] stated that JACOB is a friend of the family that stays at her residence at [REDACTED BY AGENCY] when he comes into town. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] stated she knows JACOB lives in Gwinnett County but is unsure exactly where. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] stated JACOB does wrestle at Anarchy Wrestling located at 4236 Level Grove Rd. Cornelia. GA.

[REDACTED BY AGENCY] stated at approximately 0200 Saturday morning (November 4, 2022), she was laying on the couch talking to her boyfriend. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] stated that JACOB walked over to the couch and sat down near her feet. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] stated that JACOB started trying to touch her feet, causing her to pull her feet up away from him. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] stated JACOB moved closer and continued rubbing on her legs, moving his hands higher up until he was rubbing her thighs. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] stated she kept trying to move away from JACOB but he told her to keep quiet. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] stated JACOB moved his hand up between her legs and started rubbing on her vag*na. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] stated she wanted to scream but was too scared to make a noise. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] stated that JACOB moved his hand up to her waste at the top of her pants and continued rubbing the area of her lower stomach before placing his hand inside her pants.

[REDACTED BY AGENCY] stated she got up and went to the bathroom where she stayed for a few minutes, hoping he would leave. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] stated when she returned, JACOB was still there and had his hands together as if he was begging her for something. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] stated JACOB was saying something but was unable to hear exactly what he was saying. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] stated she laid back down on the couch, pretended to go to sleep and JACOB eventually left.

[REDACTED BY AGENCY] stated she did have messages between JACOB and herself that showed him apologizing for what he did. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] emailed the messages to MCCLAIN and are attached to this report. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] also provided MCCLAIN with a written statement regarding the incident which was turned into Sheriff’s Office records to be attached to the report.

INVESTIGATOR GEORGE CASON was contacted and informed of the incident.

[REDACTED BY AGENCY] was given a business card containing the case number, information on how to contact the Sheriff’s Office and how to obtain a copy of the report.

MCCLAIN advised [REDACTED BY AGENCY] that an investigator would be in touch the following morning to arrange a follow up.
