A Serial Rapist From Oregon Will Be Released From Jail After Almost 36 Years

According to a report from The Oregonian and OregonLive published on Saturday, a man who served nearly 36 years in jail for committing many acts of sexual assault may soon be released.

Richard Troy Gillmore earned the nickname “Jogger Rapist” for his role in the sexual assaults of nine girls and women that took place in the Portland metropolitan area between the late 1970s and the early 1980s. Even though he admitted to committing the offences, he was only convicted of one of them since the statute of limitations had already passed in the other eight cases.

In December of 1986, he was found guilty of raping Tiffany Edens, who was 13 at the time, making her his last known victim.

According to the newspaper, Edens wrote on social media that she had been informed that Gillmore will be released on December 16 to transitional housing in Northwest Portland’s Old Town. This information was reported by the newspaper. The minimal amount of time he will spend under active supervision is three years.

In order to better prepare Gillmore for his release back into society, he was moved from the maximum-security Two Rivers Correctional Institution in Umatilla to the minimum-security Columbia River Correctional Institution in Northeast Portland during the month of August. According to what was published in the media, he will be regarded as a sexual offender with a relatively low level of severity.

Since he won’t be released from his post-conviction supervision until December 2034, he still has a chance of being sent back to jail if he breaks any of the requirements of his monitoring.

According to statements made by Gillmore’s victims to the newspaper, they are disappointed that he is not recognised as a Level III high-risk sex offender. If he were, the community would be required to be warned whenever he moved or changed residences.

According to Dylan Arthur, the executive director of the Oregon Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision, who spoke with The Oregonian about the matter, the classification is determined by the Static 99 risk assessment tool, which is used by the state to measure the sexual recidivism rate for prisoners who have been convicted of sex crimes.

Gillmore was categorised as a low-level offender after being evaluated with that instrument.
