GOLD HILL, Ore. – United States Marshals from the Pacific Northwest Violent Offender Task Force (PNVOTF) arrested a Grants Pass man last night for the rape of a teenaged juvenile in Gold Hill. The suspect, Trenton Scott Newman, 34, of Grants Pass, was lodged in the Jackson County Jail on charges of first-degree rape, first-degree sodomy, felony public indecency, and tampering with a witness. His bail is set at $500,000.

Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) detectives determined Newman met his underaged victim at a local church and sexually assaulted her mid-March in the backseat of a car on the 1900 block of McDonough Road in Gold Hill. Detectives are asking anyone with information related to the suspect or this investigation to call the JCSO Tip Line at (541) 774-8333 and reference case 22-1370.
