Creswell man convicted of sex abuse


A man was convicted of sex abuse crimes as a result of incidents that occurred in December 2017 and February 2018 in Creswell.
Timothy Allen Rook, 31, of Creswell was arrested on Sept. 9 by Lane County Sheriff’s Office deputies and charged with two counts of second degree sex abuse.
The first charge stems from the December 2017 incident, where Rook nonconsensually subjected a person to sexual intercourse, according to Lane County Court records.
The second charge stems from an incident on Feb. 8, 2018, when he again nonconsensually subjected the same person to sexual intercourse, according court records.
Rook was sentenced on Nov. 5 to the custody of the Oregon Department of Corrections for a period of 14 months. Court records indicate that four months will run consecutively with the first count, and the remaining 10 months will run concurrent.
Rook was ordered to submit blood or buccal samples as well as a thumbprint and must register as a sex offender, according to records.
Rook may receive credit for time served, and may be considered for any form of reduction sentence, including temporary leave from custody, work release, or a program of conditional or supervised release.
He may not be considered for release on post-prison supervision after successful completion of an alternative incarceration program, according to court records. The term for post-prison supervision is two years, and if Rook violates any of the conditions of the supervision, he may be subjected to additional imprisonment.
