A Davenport man has pleaded guilty to three charges, according to assistant Johnson County prosecutor Anne Lahey.

Jordan Garr, 21, pleaded guilty Tuesday to extortion, false imprisonment, and assault possibly in connection with an April 18 incident at Currier Hall. Garr allegedly took a video of a female subject taking her clothes off and threatened to post the video online he took of her but said he would delete the video if the woman performed oral sex on him and another subject.

According to University of Iowa police complaints, Garr was involved in two other incidents in Currier Hall. On May 10, he allegedly held a woman’s arm behind her back against her will. Garr also allegedly told another subject to take off the woman’s pants, while a third subject held her legs. On May 11, Garr reportedly took a photograph of a female subject’s breast. He allegedly promised to delete the photo if the woman bought him new sneakers, the complaint said.

Garr has been released from jail to the supervision of the Department of Corrections, according to online court documents. His sentencing is set for Jan. 28.
