HERMISTON - At a hearing Monday, Thomas Gray, attorney for Arthur Wayne Blood, a Stanfield man accused of making sex tapes with teenage girls, said Blood's case is set for trial in March but he and the district attorney's office are working on a resolution.

Gray asked Circuit Court Judge Garry Reynolds to keep Blood's pretrial and trial date on the books.

Reynolds allowed Gray the allowance, but asked Gray to decide by the pretrial date on March 5.

Oregon State Police arrested Blood on Jan 15. On Jan. 22, the Umatilla County grand jury returned multiple charges against Blood, including: Five counts of using a child a child in display of sexually explicit conduct, five counts of first-degree encouraging child sex abuse, five counts of second-degree encouraging child sex abuse and one count of sexual assault of an animal.
