A Eugene-area man who is the City Attorney for the city of Cottage Grove was lodged Thursday evening in Lane County Jail following an investigation by Oregon State Police (OSP) into an alleged Wednesday evening assault.
On January 2, 2014 at approximately 6:00 p.m., SEAN DAVID KELLY, age 44, accompanied by legal counsel, met OSP detectives at the Lane County Jail to turn himself in on a charge of Assault in the Fourth Degree. KELLY was alleged to have been involved in an assault of a 40-year old female acquaintance at a Cottage Grove-area location reported to 9-1-1 about 24 hours earlier.
Cottage Grove police responded to the initial report and then contacted OSP to take over the investigation.
After initially declining treatment, the victim reportedly did go seek a medical evaluation Thursday morning.
Lane County Sheriff's Office jail website no longer lists him in their custody. No other details to be released at this time. Questions regarding court appearance(s) should be directed to Lane County District Attorney's Office.
