Woman jumps out of moving car to escape alleged rapist
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - A local woman was so desperate to get away from Jason Evick, she jumped out of a moving car, according to police.
The woman said Evick refused to let her leave a Clinton County home where she was raped and beaten for days. Evidence in the case will include security video from the I-Hop on State Route 28 where the woman ran for help after bailing out of Evick's moving car.
The prosecution will also file a motion to use testimony from Evick's past victims
A number of other victims of domestic violence and some of the factual areas of those other acts are similar to this case that they create what could be called a behavioral fingerprint.
Some of those victims are likely linked to Evick’s rap sheet, which includes abduction in 2014; domestic violence in 2014; domestic violence in 2010 and 2009; assault in 2007, 2006, and 2005; kidnapping in 2004; domestic violence in 2004, 1999, 1998, 1996, and 1995.
Evick's past also includes his part in the gruesome 2005 holiday murder of Michael Fish in Clermont County. He was beaten with shovels and set on fire while he was alive. Evick got off by testifying against Jeff Eberle, convicted of aggravated murder.
Sources told Local12's Deb Dixon, Evick gets away with violence by threatening witnesses, but she was also told the woman in this case is safe and ready to testify.
Prosecutors in Clermont County are working with Clinton County prosecutors on this case.
