Roseburg Man Accused of Attempted Sexual Exploitation of a Child | USAO-OR

PORTLAND, Ore.—U.S. Attorney Billy J. Williams announced today that a Roseburg man has been charged with Attempted Sexual Exploitation of a Child after he used a hidden camera to attempt to record lewd images of a minor girl.

A federal grand jury in Medford has returned a one-count indictment charging Robert Wayne Roady, 48, with Attempted Sexual Exploitation of a Child in violation of Title 18 United States Code, Section 2251 (a) and (e).

Roady was originally charged in Douglas County Circuit Court on October 22, 2020 with nine counts of Invasion of Privacy in violation of Oregon law. Roady has remained in state custody since his arrest on those charges. This federal indictment is an adoption of the state case. Once Douglas County prosecutors dismiss the state matter, Roady will be transferred to federal custody for an appearance at a later date in Eugene, Oregon.

This case is being investigated by the FBI and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office. It is being prosecuted by Adam E. Delph and Jeffrey S. Sweet, Assistant U.S. Attorneys for the District of Oregon.

An indictment is only an accusation of a crime, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
