Forest Grove man accused of numerous underage sex crimes

Posted: Updated:
FOREST GROVE, OR (KPTV) -

A Forest Grove man is in jail, accused of inappropriate sexual conduct with numerous underage girls for many years.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office says Steven Douglas Rockett, 44, had recently engaged in inappropriate sexual conduct with three underage females in Aloha.

Detectives said Rockett also solicited nude photos from one of the girls.

Washington County child abuse detectives believe there are additional victims because they say Rockett traveled extensively, including to foreign countries.

Officials have investigated Rockett on numerous occasions over the last 14 years but they say they were unable to gain sufficient evidence to charge him with any crimes.

In this case, child abuse detectives were able to gather evidence to charge Rockett with sex abuse, rape and sodomy.

His bail is set at $500,000.

Additional victims or anyone with information about this case is asked to call the sheriff's office detective division at 503-846-2500.
