GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- Court watchers waited for nearly two hours for Christopher Stout to make an appearance at his scheduled arraignment today. When he did not show, the State asked the judge to issue a warrant for his arrest.

It was revealed early on Stout was not behind bars. He had been conditionally released and was receiving treatment for an undisclosed medical issue.

Evidence was also presented before a grand jury today. They indicted Stout for attempted rape in the first degree and online sexual corruption.

The probable cause affidavit is shedding new light on the sexual nature of those charges. In the affidavit, the investigator says Stout admitted to sending sexually explicit messages to the 10-year-old victim before he attempted to pick her and two others up at Allen Dale Elementary.

The explicit messages were sent on Facebook messenger. In one message, Stout allegedly asked the victim what color her undergarments were. In another, he wrote about picking her up and having sex with her.

The investigator also says Stout admitted that sending the messages was wrong because he was 43 years old and she was 10.
