Deputies searching for possible sex abuse victims
Jeremy Dickey coached girls softball team in Aloha
Washington County Sheriff's detectives are searching for possible sex abuse victims following the arrest of an Aloha softball coach.
Detectives believe Jeremy Dickey, 38, engaged in inappropriate sexual conduct with an underage female during the spring of 2012. Detectives arrested Dickey on Dec. 13 and charged him with several sex crimes, but believe there may be more victims that have not yet been identified.
Dickey was indicted by a Washington County Grand Jury on Dec. 18 for First and Third Degree Sodomy, two counts of Second Degree Sex Abuse, First Degree Unlawful Sexual Penetration, and Tampering with a Witness.
Dickey coached the Beaverton Blaze 98, a teenage girls softball team located in the Beaverton-Aloha area, as recently as last summer. Although the underage female victim was not on the team, investigators are concerned there may be additional victims, some perhaps involved with it.
Detectives are asking parents to talk to their children about anything that was out of the ordinary, suspicious or inappropriate involving Dickey and report any findings to the Washington County Sheriff's Office. If you have any information, please call the office at (503) 846-2500.
The crimes are believed to have been committed in Aloha, an area of the Enhanced Sheriff's Patrol District.
