ROSEBURG, Ore. – A Roseburg man is booked in the Douglas County Jail on multiple sex crimes after what Oregon State Police called a lengthy criminal investigation.

State Police said 37-year-old Sean Michael Handlery of Roseburg was arrested on Wednesday on charges that include Rape III, Sodomy III, Sexual Abuse III, Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor, Sexual Misconduct and Luring a Minor.

Handlery’s arrest was the result of a lengthy criminal investigation, according to State Police.

According to court documents, the victim was an acquaintance of Handlery and a 15-year-old girl at the time a sexual relationship began between the two. That relationship was documented through text messages, social media, and notebooks exchanged between the two. Documents also described Handlery knowing he was committing a crime as an attorney. The sexual relationship between the two ended in February 2016 and in December 2017, the now 18-year-old girl went to Oregon State Police with information.
