Richmond Man Arrested for Sodomy, Rape on a Child


Richmond Police recently obtained a warrant and arrested a man who is accused of sexually abusing a four year old girl. 37 year old Jason Baldwin is accused of first degree rape and first degree sodomy after he was asked by the victim’s parents to watch a seven year old son and the four year old daughter.

When the parents returned home on the day of the incident from the beginning of the month, the victim informed her parents that Baldwin touched her inappropriately. The victim elaborated and said the Baldwin allegedly also showed her pornographic videos in addition to the sodomy and rape.

A child advocacy group also questioned the young girl, and her story remained consistent.

A warrant was obtained, and officers were able to seize Baldwin’s phone. In the search history, they allegedly found sites with child pornography. The phone was sent off to forensics for further testing, and Baldwin said he would not answer any questions until he spoke to his lawyer.

He is currently lodged in the Detention Center on a $50,000 cash bond.
