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.
