Trappe man charged with rape, assault, violating probation
EASTON — A Trappe man faces rape and sex offense charges, and is accused of violating his probation in a case from last summer.
Jah’Mere Elijawon Foster, 20, was charged Aug. 20 with second-degree rape, second-degree sex offense, sex abuse, sodomy, perverted practice and second-degree assault. These offenses allegedly occurred between Sept. 1, 2017, and May 19, 2018. The charges were brought after a sixmonth investigation by the Talbot County Sheriff’s Office, Criminal Investigation Unit.
In May, Foster was charged with assault in two separate cases.
He was charged May 19 with second-degree assault, harass: course of conduct and trespass: private property, according to court documents.
On May 28, Foster was charged with fourth-degree sex offense and seconddegree assault, which allegedly occurred on May 25.
Foster had pleaded guilty to second-degree assault on July 26, 2017, receiving a 90-day suspended sentence and two years of supervised probation. Prosecutors dropped a charge of fourthdegree sexual offense in that case.
Foster was advised of 15 conditions in that case, some of which prohibited him from entering an Easton home, having no contact with the victim,and to follow treatment recommendations of Eastern Shore Psychological Services.
However, the ESPS treatment staff told the court, on Nov. 16, 2017, of Foster’s noncompliance with the attendance policy, leading to a request for probation violation and resulting in a 90-day suspension from a sex offender treatment program.
Foster was readmitted to the sex offender program in January, but after attending only one treatment session since being readmitted to the program, ESPS released a treatment summary discharge on Feb. 28, detailing Foster’s “unsatisfactory discharge: noncompliance with program requirements,” according to court papers.
Foster is being held without bond at the Talbot County Detention Center.
