A Yardley man who was charged with statutory rape, sexual assault, and sexual extortion in 2021, was convicted in Florida late last year for “strangling” his then girlfriend.
The recently decided case in Tampa Bay led to anger and frustration on the part of the victim’s family who located the arrest information through an online search.
Cody Jammer, now 26, pleaded guilty to domestic battery by strangulation, in a Tampa Florida court, according to court records obtained by Lower Bucks Source.
He was charged by Tampa Police on December 11 of 2021.
Jammer, according to Tampa Police, strangled the victim a minimum of seven times, and at least one time the victim said she lost consciousness, as well as feared for her life.
Jammer is also to have allegedly bitten the victim on each of her forearms leaving teeth marks consistent with her statement, police said. The victim also sustained lacerations to her left temple area, and in turn had bleeding coming from her left ear, police said in court records
Police said he fled the scene prior to their arrival.
Police said the victim had obvious red marks around her neck area and stomach area, confirming the attack.
According to the court records Jammer was involved in a prior incident where he was charged for aggravated assault by Tampa Police also. The publication hopes to obtain those police and court records in the coming days.
Its his third recorded incident involving violence against women Jammer has been accused of.
Jammer’s arrest and guilty plea to the single count of domestic battery in Florida came to the attention of Lower Bucks Source due to a social media post from the rape victim’s family, who reside out of state.
Jammer is alleged to have raped, assaulted, and sexually extorted a Lower Bucks county woman. The assaults started, police say, when the victim was 13.
In that criminal filing, he allegedly asked the victim to recruit young girls with a ‘baby face’ so he could have threesomes and is alleged to have provided pictorial examples to her.
Jammer’s parents own a local business and posted bail of $50,000.00 for their son on August 20, the day he was arraigned on the alleged rape counts by Lower Makefield Police.
Jammer is scheduled to appear in The Bucks County Court of Common Pleas for trial in June, according to online county records. has no bail restrictions and was given permission to attend school at the University of Tampa while his Bucks County case winds through the system, officials said.
Due in part to a backlog of cases in the county system created by the COVID-19 pandemic the case has proceeded through the system at a frustrating pace, the family of the victim said.
Hillsborough County Judge Paul Jeske sentenced the Bucks County man to two years of state probation with several conditions of his sentence: no victim contact, complete domestic violence classes, submit to alcohol and drug screening, 50 hours of community service and complete a mental health evaluation.
The family of victim in the Bucks County case expressed frustration with the progress of case in Bucks and asked a simple yet direct question; how is Jammer still free and on bail for his Bucks County case?
Director of Communications for the Bucks County District Attorney’s office, Manuel Gamiz Jr. said the bail judge would have set release conditions and because he was attending The University of Tampa Bay, according to Jammer’s Linkedin profile, he was allowed to continue doing so.
The bail judge would not have restricted his ability to leave the state as a condition, Gamiz said.
Gamiz did say the DA’s office was recently alerted to Jammer’s Florida case and guilty plea but had no further comment on the issue.
