Sex-crime suspect released from jail without arraignment


MILTON-FREEWATER (AP) - State prosecutors' failure to arraign a sex-crimes suspect within 36 hours of his arrest forced his release from jail.

The East Oregonian reports Manuel Camarena-Villanueva, 26, allegedly confessed to inappropriately touching the bottoms of two children at a local pool. He was charged with two counts of first-degree sexual abuse and three counts of harassment. The sex-abuse charges carry a mandatory minimum sentence upon conviction of 6 years, 3 months.
