The Air Force reservist accused of committing a sex crime at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base pleaded guilty to sexual abuse Thursday in Dayton’s U.S. District Court.

Kyle Jordan, 31, changed his plea in front of U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Michael Newman, who sat in for Judge Walter Rice. If the judge accepts the plea agreement, Jordan could receive a federal prison sentence of up to 87 months, or 7 years and three months.

A former Butler County corrections officer, Jordan was indicted one count of engaging in a sex act with a woman identified as Female A “who was incapable of appraising the nature of the conduct,” according to court records.

A statement of facts read in court by assistant U.S. attorney Alex Sistla stated that Jordan admitted to having sex with a woman who was asleep in a bedroom of a residence that he had rented. A federal public defender earlier said the incident happened after a night of drinking at a Christmas party.

As part of the proposed plea agreement, three other charges against Jordan would be dismissed at sentencing April 11. Jordan also would be required to register as a sex offender and pay mandatory restitution.

The count Jordan pleaded guilty to has a range of between zero years and life in prison, a maximum $250,000 fine and special assessments totaling $5,100.
