Oregon law does allow a person convicted of a sex crime to get relief from registering as a sex offender.
FOX 12 reached out to the Oregon Youth Authority regarding his prior conviction and information about his sex offender registration, but details were not released.
The sexual contact was consensual, the alleged victim told police, and occurred multiple times in Gresham and Troutdale, according to a probable cause affidavit.
Rhodes said he was concerned about having sex with the teen because of a past history of sex crimes, court documents state.
A man who has led protests in Portland and is a convicted sex offender is now facing new charges of sex abuse, according to court records. He is facing four counts of second-degree sex abuse, according to the Multnomah County Jail.
He spoke with a lawyer and asked the judge to grant his release, but his request was denied due to a pending hold from a prior case.
