More details emerge on child molestation allegations against road rage suspect

Court documents released Wednesday reveal new details about the child molestation charges filed against road rage suspect Jason R. Hoy and his wife, Kellie R. Hoy.

The Hoys are accused of molesting a 14-year-old girl and a 15-year-old girl on separate occasions in November. Both girls were longtime family friends of the Hoys.

Kellie Hoy has denied that anything inappropriate happened with either girl, according to court documents.

Both girls said they were in the Hoys’ bedroom to watch movies and that Jason Hoy groped and fondled them while Kellie Hoy also participated by holding or rubbing their arms and legs, according to court documents.

The girls told police they communicated with the Hoys via text message and Snapchat. The father of one of the girls found a picture of Jason Hoy in his boxer shorts that he had texted the girl along with messages telling her she was sexy and beautiful, according to court documents.

One text sent from Jason Hoy to one of the victims references him being sick “but in order to spend the day and night with you I can get through any sickness,” according to court documents. A message sent from Kellie Hoy to the same girl on the same day said they would “lay around and cuddle all day.” The messages were sent on the day the molestation allegedly occurred.

Jason Hoy was ordered held on $100,000 bond after a brief court appearance Wednesday on two counts of child molestation. He also has been charged with assault and driving under the influence related to the Saturday incident in which he allegedly rammed multiple cars in downtown Spokane.

Kellie R. Hoy has been charged with two counts of child molestation and was sent a summons to appear in court. She has not been arrested.

Both Hoys are convicted felons. They own Cobblestone Catering and Events LLC, which had an exclusive contract to provide catering services at the CenterPlace Regional Event Center in Spokane Valley since early 2015.

The city of Spokane Valley owns CenterPlace. City Attorney Cary Driskell said the contract between Cobblestone and the city was terminated Wednesday. The city will offer an emergency contract to another caterer to ensure CenterPlace customers get the service they were expecting, he said.

“It really is an emergency situation, and we need to get someone in,” Driskell said.
