PENDLETON — Former Oregon Youth Authority supervisor Gary Charles Cross has a court date to change his plea to charges of sexual and official misconduct.
Umatilla County Circuit Court records show Cross, 39, of Jefferson, has a change of plea hearing Dec. 2 in Pendleton. Cross pleaded not guilty in May to two counts of first-degree custodial sexual misconduct, class C felonies, and four counts of first-degree official misconduct, class A misdemeanors.
The state has accused Cross of having a sexual relationship with an 18-year-old former inmate at Oak Creek Youth Correctional Facility, Albany, where he worked as a group life coordinator.
According to court documents, Cross in 2016 came to Pendleton for Oregon Youth Authority meetings and had sex with the girl in his hotel room.
