Man accused of drugging local women cuts deal with prosecutors

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Portland man accused of drugging and sexually abusing several women cut a deal with prosecutors Monday.

Marlin Pohlman pleaded guilty to two drug charges and attempted assault. He also pleaded no contest to sex abuse.

Police arrested Pohlman at the Portland airport in March after he returned home from a trip to Thailand.

He is accused of abusing at least four local women since late 2011 after handing out homemade drugs at raves and spiking drinks with substances to make women pass out.

One woman told police she tried to fight, but had difficulty speaking and felt physically paralyzed. She said Pohlman told her if she screamed, he would put duct tape on her mouth.

Hazmat crews raided his North Portland home in March and said they found ecstasy and nitrous oxide.

Pohlman is scheduled to be sentenced in mid-October.
