MEDFORD, Ore. — A local man arrested in Colorado last year on suspicion of multiple sex crimes entered a "no contest" plea in a Jackson County court on Wednesday.

U.S. Marshals and local law enforcement officers in Colorado arrested 21-year-old Isaac James Bergstrom in April of 2019 following a Jackson County investigation. The Jackson County Sheriff's Office said at the time that Bergstrom had preyed upon a series of girls in their early teens between 2015 and 2017.

Detectives believed that Bergstrom met the victims through school, activities, and acquaintances — both during and after his time as a student at Phoenix High School. They also expressed concern that Bergstrom may have had other victims who had not yet come forward.

On Wednesday, Bergstrom pleaded "no contest" to three counts of Sexual Abuse in the Second Degree. In a no contest plea, the defendant does not admit guilt for the crime, but agrees to the facts of the case and submits to conviction.

Judge Laura Cromwell sentenced Bergstrom to 60 consecutive months — or five years — in state prison. Though Bergstrom received a total of 68 months for the three counts, eight months ran concurrently with other portions of the sentence.
