A Gresham man conditionally released before his Deschutes County sexual abuse trial is in custody at the Tillamook County jail on related charges, court records show.
James Daniel Worley, 42, is being held in lieu of $1.1 million bail in the Tillamook County jail on charges of sexual abuse, rape and sodomy of two children, alleged to have occurred in 2005 and 2006. The Tillamook County jail confirmed Worley remained in custody Thursday.
Court records show Worley, a pastor and former Tillamook police officer, pleaded not guilty on April 29 to 12 counts of first-degree sexual abuse, three counts of first-degree rape and several other sex crimes in Tillamook County. Records also indicate Worley’s attorney argued for his conditional release, but the motion was denied.
Worley pleaded not guilty in January to 37 charges pertaining to the alleged sexual abuse of two children between 2002 and 2004 in Deschutes County. He was conditionally released from the Deschutes County jail in late January after his bail was reduced from $1 million to $250,000.
He now also awaits a trial in Tillamook County, which is scheduled to begin Aug. 11. His Deschutes County trial is scheduled to begin about a month later on Sept. 15 and is expected to take eight to 10 days.
