PORTLAND -- The man charged in the strange case of clipping the hair of women on TriMet buses was sentenced Wednesday to 14 months in prison for each of two counts of tampering with a witness.
Jared Walter pled guilty last month in Multnomah County circuit court. As part of his sentencing, additional charges of interfering with public transportation and third-degree robbery were dropped.
This only begins the court and prison challenges facing Walter. Once out on the Multnomah County sentences, he has two years of post prison supervision.
He may not be a free man. Clackamas County wants to try him on charges of interfering with public transportation and third-degree robbery, where a number of women reported being his victim.
If convicted and sentenced there, he faces trial in Houston, Texas, where women complained of similar assaults. Walter has already waived extradition to Texas if authorities there pursue the case.
When arrested in January, many women came forward with additional stories of his assaults, which included reports of hair being super-glued.
