Sequim man faces additional charges
A 19-year-old Sequim man already facing charges of child rape, molestation and cyberstalking now faces a slew of additional charges after police interviewed a 14-year-old who said she was victimized, too.
Dylan S. Valin was arrested on suspicion of child rape and cyberstalking Feb. 8. At the time, he was accused of having sex with and molesting one 13-year-old girl as well as sending threatening text messages to another.
According to a motion filed by Clallam County Deputy Prosecutor Ann Lundwall, a 14-year-old girl interviewed by police on Feb. 17 disclosed she was molested and harassed by Valin in 2010.
The Sequim Gazette does not name victims of sex crimes.
Lundwall filed additional charges in Clallam County Superior Court on March 11. Valin now faces three counts of second-degree child rape, one count of third-degree child rape, two counts of first-degree child molestation, one count of first-degree child molestation, one count of cyberstalking and one count of harassment.
His arraignment on the new charges is scheduled for March 18. He remains in custody at the Clallam County jail in lieu of $70,000 bond.
