Charge: Child Molester Sprayed Jail Nurse With Blood
SEATTLEPI.COM - A jailed child molester is facing assault charges following allegations that he accosted two jail nurses, spraying his own blood on one woman.
Jailed on new child molestation charges, Jacob Kellogg, 37, was housed at the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center on Dec. 27 when a nurse tried to check his blood sugar.
According to charging documents, Kellogg squeezed his finger after the nurse pricked it, spraying her with a small amount of blood.
"He then laughed about it and said, 'I am sorry. You know that that is assault?'" a King County Department of Adult and Juvenile Detention investigator told the court. "He then returned to the dayroom area where he laughed and joked about it."
King County prosecutors also contend Kellogg assaulted a second nurse three days after the Dec. 27 incident. According to charging documents, Kellogg, by then in solitary confinement, punched one nurse and sent a medical cart into the arm and leg of another.
Kellogg has been charged with third-degree assault -- assault on a law enforcement officer -- in both cases.
Separately, Kellogg remains jailed on a first-degree child molestation charge.
Convicted of child molestation following a 1991 charge, Kellogg stands accused of sexually assaulting a 9-year-old girl whom he had contact through a friend. He has pleaded not guilty.
