SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- A former nurse at RiverBend Hospital will serve 10 years in prison for sex crimes.
Larry Wilt pleaded guilty to multiple charges on Wednesday, the Lane County District Attorney's Office said. They include first-degree attempted unlawful sexual penetration and two counts of tampering with a witness. Senior Prosecutor Erik Hasselman also said Judge Debra Velure found him guilty of first-degree sexual abuse after a stipulated facts trial.
Wilt was sentenced on all four felonies to 10 years at an Oregon Department of Corrections facility. He will also complete six years of post-prison supervision.
Under Oregon law, Wilt must register and report as a sex offender.
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 spokeswoman confirmed in February that Wilt was no longer employed by PeaceHealth.
