Man previously in custody for rape arrested again

1005-derek-michael-stoutMedford, Ore. – The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office said a woman came forward and claimed she was victimized by a man who was previously arrested for sexual assault.

Deputies said Derek Michael Stout was taken into custody last month following an investigation that revealed he raped one teen and assaulted another in his home. He was arrested on multiple charges. Stout posted bail and was released from custody.

On Wednesday, deputies said in a press release that a 23-year-old woman claimed Stout tried to rape her in 2013. Stout was arrested again and charged with one count of attempted rape in the first degree.

(This article was corrected from a previous version that said the 23-year-old woman claimed Stout raped her. The woman instead claimed Stout attempted to rape her.)
