Andrew Lee Darby was arrested by officers from the Newberg-Dundee Police Department June 12 on four counts of first-degree rape, four counts of second-degree sexual abuse and six counts of first-degree sodomy. He was subsequently charged with second-degree encouraging child sex abuse and using a child in display of sexually explicit conduct.

A district attorney report filed Wednesday in Yamhill County Circuit Court by prosecutor Lisl Miller alleges that over a four-and-a-half- year period Darby had intercourse or oral intercourse with two Newberg girls under the age of 16 without their consent.

The first-degree rape and sodomy charges are Measure 11 felony crimes that, if the case reaches trial and Darby is found guilty, require mandatory minimum sentences of 100 months (eight years, four months) on each count.

Second-degree sexual abuse is not a Measure 11 crime. Whether the sentences run consecutively or concurrently is up to the discretion of the judge.

Darby is housed in the Yamhill County jail. Bail was set by Circuit Court Judge John Collins at $500,000 during an arraignment hearing held Wednesday. He is set for indictment on Wednesday (June 20).
