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.
