James Vosolo

46-year-old James Vosolo, a former child entertainer who is accused of sexually assaulting a truck driver at a rest area, is expected to take a plea bargain, Salem News reported.

In October 2012, a truck driver was parked at the Rowley rest stop off Interstate 95 when a nearly naked man suddenly jumped into the man’s truck, propositioned the driver for sex and grabbed the driver’s genitals twice.

According to the Salem News, the truck driver pretended to be interested in the proposition– just to get the man out of his truck– and suggested the two meet up at a Seabrook, New Hampshire, rest area.

The driver then left the rest area and called police.  Trooper Michael Caranfa took the driver’s call.

According to the Salem News, Trooper Caranfa caught up with Vosolo and attempted to pull him over, but  Vosolo refused to pull over before throwing several items from his car.

When Vosolo finally pulled over, Trooper Caranfa searched his car and found that Vosolo was wearing only a thong and had sex toys and Halloween masks in his car.

Salem News reports that Vosolo works for Total Entertainment, a professional party planning company.  Vosolo was employed by the company for 15 years and often performed as a clown, Elvis, Uncle Sam and various other characters.

Vosolo is charged with lewd and lascivious behavior and indecent assault and battery of a person over 14, indecent exposure, assault and battery, failure to stop for police, a marked lanes violation, and disorderly conduct.

If convicted of felony charges of indecent assault and battery of a person over 14, Vosolo could face a 5-year prison sentence and would have to register as a sex offender.

Volsolo is scheduled to appear in court on April 26.  According to Salem News,Volsolo is expected to take a plea bargain.
