EUGENE, Ore. – A man sentenced for sexual abuse received overwhelming support in the race for a Lane Community College board seat on Tuesday.
Philip Carrasco, who was sentenced last week for third-degree sexual abuse, received more than 90 percent of the vote over write-in candidates. As of midnight, that number amounted to 28,176 votes.
In April, Carrasco resigned from the zone 5 position on the board. He technically wasn’t up for election, though his name was on the ballot.
