Youth softball coach accused of sex crimes

ALOHA, Ore. - A local youth softball coach is accused of sex crimes and investigators believe there may be more victims out there.

Jeremy Dickey was taken into custody on Dec. 13 and since then, detectives say they have found evidence of more crimes.

Dickey is currently charged with first-degree sodomy, third-degree sodomy, two counts of second-degree sex abuse, first-degree unlawful sexual penetration and tampering with a witness. He is accused of having inappropriate sexual contact with an underage girl in the spring of 2012.

Over the summer, Dickey coached a teenage girl's softball team called the Beaverton Blaze 98. Police say the underage female he is accused of having sexual contact with was not a member of the team, but investigators are concerned about the girls who were.

If your child had contact with Dickey, police want to know about anything that was out of the ordinary, suspicious or inappropriate. You can call the Washington County Sheriff's Office at (503) 846-2500 to make a report.
