OSP became involved when it was discovered the incidents had occurred both in and outside the city limits of Grants Pass. Detectives were also assisted by the Children’s Advocacy Center, Department of Human Services, and Josephine County Community Corrections. Koger was lodged at the Josephine County Jail on all charges.
