39-year-old Kenneth Wasson met a 15-year-old girl on Grindr and talked her into sex by offering to explain the JROTC program. The juvenile girl spoke with the police and told them she met Kenneth on the Grindr dating app. Kenneth told her that he was in the Army and wanted to speak with her about the JROTC program, but he said it would be better to do so in person. She said that he arrived at her house on July 26th and explained the JROTC program, then he put his hand on her knee. He then rubbed up her leg until he pulled down her pants, licked her vagina, put a condom on, then penetrated her vagina with his penis. Once he finished, he pulled his pants up and left the residence. She said that he texted her two pictures of his penis after the sexual encounter and sent a message saying, “We need to get together again; once wasn’t enough.”
On August 2nd, detectives were present when Kenneth texted the juvenile female admitting to having sex with her and when he said, “And maybe hit me up when you hit 18.” Wasson’s social media includes recent photos of him with underage children at IndyCar racing events, such as the one happening in Nashville this weekend. Wasson’s social media shows him living in Florida and as married.
Kenneth Orion Wasson was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on August 3rd, charged with two counts of statutory rape and two counts of solicitation of a minor. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $400,000.
