Sexton said nothing during the hearing, but his attorney, David Washington, said his client wants to accept responsibility and move on with his life.
“He does understand his actions were inappropriate,” Washington said. “He is still concerned about the well being of the young lady involved … he does care for her deeply.”
After the hearing, Washington said Sexton does not know the whereabouts of Bogan.
“If he knew where she was, he’d tell (the police),” Washington said. “He had nothing to do with her disappearance.”
Sexton reported Bogan missing Sept. 14 and said he last saw her the day before getting into a silver Dodge Durango at the corner of Central Avenue and Baltimore Street in downtown Middletown. Sexton said he and Bogan, the mother of their 9-month-old daughter, were planning to get married.
Sexton told the Journal-News in September that Bogan was not a prostitute, but when he reported her missing to Middletown police, he said they “engaged in prostitution” activity, according to a police report.
Bogan is described as 5-foot-6, 118 pounds with brown eyes and black hair. She has a rainbow tattoo on her hip and a star tattoo on her shoulder.
