Disturbing local news: Deputy arrested on 180 child abuse, drug counts (from Bend.com) and the follow-up article: Deputy arraigned on 143 sex abuse, drug charges. This is way too creepy. The guy was a deputy for 10 years. So wrong.
The articles state that the “charge of using a child in a sexually explicit conduct is a Measure 11 offense and carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 70 months in prison”—I hope they apply the 70-month minimum to each and every charge he’s arraigned for (143 counts). That would put him at 10,010 months, or over 834 years. Otherwise, 70 months just doesn’t seem anywhere near long enough.
