A Peru, Kansas, man was booked into the Douglas County Jail on suspicion of rape, sex abuse and sodomy Wednesday.

Jobin Tanner Reed, 37, formerly of Roseburg, is accused of committing sex crimes against a juvenile female younger than 14 years old between May 1, 2015, and June 7, 2019, according to court records.

A formal indictment was filed against Reed on March 4, accusing the man of two counts of first-degree rape, one count of first-degree sodomy and three counts of first-degree sexual abuse. Rape and sodomy in the first degree are Class A felonies and first-degree sexual abuse is a Class B felony. All fall under Oregon’s Measure 11 minimum sentencing guidelines.

On the same day the indictment was filed, Circuit Court Judge Frances Burge issued a warrant for Reed’s arrest. Reed was returned to Douglas County custody after being located in Peru, a community of 139 people in the southeastern corner of Kansas.

Reed was formally arraigned Thursday and his bail was set at $750,000. A plea hearing has been scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Thursday.

I wouldn’t be surprised to find out some of the crime in this town is planned out by city officials and perpetrated by expendable individuals they hire, for their own personal long term gain💵💰💵

For a Community so Deeply seated with Absolutely So many QAnon Nut Jobs. Sure seems like Douglas County is Ground Zero for Phedos.!!! And so many are Locally Home Grown Phedos too.

There's something I see over and over again in Roseburg. I call it reverse projection. It's a technique (or a mental disorder) . Many people here use a opposite presentation to trick others. I remember a church I went to as a kid. The pastor was selling cars on the side with a partner. It turned out the cars were stolen.

Big presentation. Big theft ring. Stolen cars from Jesus? That's how people are duped here. Of course it has a lot of variations. They are all different kinds of con jobs.

So what does this have to do with sex offences? Crime is like a cult in Roseburg. Psychological, physical, or sexual abuse can be initiation and later control over others. See the odd hint of a smile on this guy's face? That's a clue.
