Recently charged with coercion of a witness, Jarrod Andrew Wilson, 26, has a compilation of evidence that accuses him of verbally abusing and threatening an ex-girlfriend.

According to the Campbell County Sheriff’s Department warrant, Wilson was living with the victim for three weeks before he was charged with assaulting her on Sept. 21.

The victim reported the assault to police and Wilson allegedly fled the state to avoid charges, the warrant states.

According to officer Lesley Prewitt, starting on Sept. 23, Wilson began calling the victim, threatening and harassing her.

According to sheriff’s department records, Wilson was arrested on Sept. 23 and charged with assault and domestic violence.

The warrant further states on Nov. 7, Wilson called the victim at work.

“He told her that she would regret having him arrested,” said Prewitt.

The warrant states, Wilson continued to call several more times, telling her he wasn’t the one who assaulted her and to drop the charges.

According to Prewitt, Wilson told the victim if she did not drop the charges, “He would get even with her through her children.”

The alleged harassment continued for several days, the report states.

“Defendant has been to her (the victim) work place, trying to see her,” said Prewitt. “Defendant has attempted to influence a witness in official proceedings with intent to influence the witness to testify falsely.”

Wilson was charged with coercion of a witness. He was arrested and later released with a bond of $2,500.
