Philip Carrasco will serve three years of supervised probation and must register as a sex offender. He was also sentenced to 20 days in jail with credit for time served. He is eligible for alternative programs like community service. His attorney said they will file an appeal. 

"I was pleased to see that he got supervised probation," Lane County prosecutor Elle McCall said. "As I articulated in court, it's important that these people get monitored in our community, so I was happy to see that happen. We got almost everything we asked for, just 10 days less jail time, so I was pleased with the outcome."

Court documents show Carrasco was arrested last year after he was accused of inappropriately touching a girl under the age of 18 who was working as his children's babysitter.

He was found guilty of the misdemeanor crime in April. A jury found him not guilty on a second charge of third-degree sexual abuse.

Carrasco's name is on the ballot for the May election for the LCC board of directors zone five position. He is running unopposed.
