A Norwood man charged with multiple sex crimes is now accused of threatening an underage witness from jail.

According to the grand jury indictment, Cody Lee Jackson between Dec. 16 of last year and Jan. 14, did knowingly threaten and corruptly persuade a witness, victim, or informant by making repeated threatening and harassing phone calls with the intent to influence, delay, and prevent the testimony of the minor.

He's scheduled to appear in court on that indictment Friday at 1:30 p.m.

Jackson, 20, is currently in jail awaiting trial after being indicted on coercion and enticement, production of child porn and transfer of obscene matter to a minor.  He pleaded not guilty to those charges in October of last year.

He also faces state charges, including rape.

Authorities say he was on an electronic monitor in an abduction case when he had a 14-year-old girl dropped off at his home by taxi and held her captive for months and raped her.

He was arrested in October of last year in Utah, where authorities say he fled after being taken off electronic monitoring this summer.

Jackson is scheduled to go on trial Jan. 25 in U.S. District Court in Cincinnati for the charges.
