While investigating the sex offense, officers found that Jordan “did solicit and possess a video of mentally impaired juvenile female,” according to affidavit filed in the case. The juvenile is known to Jordan.

The juvenile’s mother, as well as her online school, allowed police to search her cellphone, which was assigned to her by her school. After going through the phone, officers found numerous texts and videos between Jordan and the juvenile with details of a “graphic inappropriate relationship.”
