A Tillamook man who allegedly paid for sex with a teenage boy has agreed to serve 30 days in jail and two years of probation.
Neil Alexander Dowell, 29, allegedly paid for sex with the 16-year-old boy in August after communicating with him online. Dowell pleaded no contest Wednesday to second-degree online sexual corruption and purchasing sex with a minor and was released from jail.
He originally faced charges of luring a minor and two counts of prostitution before the agreement with the Clatsop County District Attorney’s Office.
Dowell also was found guilty in February of first-degree forgery and driving under the influence of intoxicants after reaching a plea deal in a separate case. He was arrested in July after passing fake $20 bills twice at Burger King on Marine Drive.
Police later executed a search warrant and found more counterfeit money and a small amount of heroin in his car. Judge Cindee Matyas sentenced him to 12 days in jail, three years of probation and ordered him to pay a $1,495 fine.
Dowell is scheduled to be sentenced in May for the sex crimes.
