Elgin man pleads not guilty to sex crimes charges

A National Guardsman arrested on sex crime charges in August pleaded not guilty to all charges in court Tuesday morning.

Jeremy Lee Flannery, 35, of Elgin was arrested Aug. 7 on two counts of third-degree sodomy, two counts of sexual misconduct, two counts of contributing to the sexual delinquency of a minor, and one count each of third-degree rape and third-degree sexual abuse.

The charges stem from incidents with a 15-year-old female that occurred in June and July of 2013, according to court documents.

Flannery is a sergeant in the Oregon National Guard. A Guard spokesman in August said disciplinary action is usually not taken until a Guardsman has been convicted of a crime, though they sometimes may be placed on administrative leave.

A representative for the Guard said Tuesday afternoon that no disciplinary action has been taken in this particular case.

If a deal between attorneys is not reached by Jan. 21, the case will head to trial.
