SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- A former nurse at RiverBend Hospital accused of sex crimes is once again in jail.

He was booked into the Lane County jail on Tuesday morning.

Initially, Wilt was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree sexual abuse in December 2019.

Court records show prosecutors allege that count one happened between Sept. 2, 2010, and Sept. 1, 2012, in Lane County when the alleged victim was a minor.

The second count happened between Sept. 2, 2015, and Sept. 1, 2016, in Lane County, when the same victim was physically helpless, according to prosecutors.

Then, in January, Wilt was arrested after allegedly violating a restraining order. Court documents said Wilt violated a one-mile barrier set by the court to protect the victim in the sexual abuse case. He allegedly showed up at the victim’s workplace and was looking for her car in the parking lot.

A PeaceHealth spokeswoman on Tuesday said Wilt is no longer employed by PeaceHealth.
