Jury orders child molester locked up

Child molester Ronald Reo Timm should be locked up indefinitely because he’s a predator who poses a danger to society, a Spokane jury decided today.

Assistant Attorney General Tricia Boerger gave the state’s final argument Tuesday before the jury, made up of nine men and three women, began deliberating the future of the 59-year-old sex offender.

Timm was convicted in 1989 of statutory rape and then again in 1996 for first-degree rape of a child. While in prison, Timm told a counselor that he molested 24 children, all ages between 3 and 7.

“He is a predator,” Boerger said of Timm. “He preys on young girls to satisfy his sexual desires.”
