[ARCHIVED] Man Arrested for Online Sexual Corruption of a Child in the First Degree

On January 14, a Special Investigations detective was working a sting regarding child prostitution and posed online as a teen girl. A man, later identified as Nathan Duane Oeming, age 40, of Eugene, responded to the posting and made an agreement to meet the “girl” who identified herself as age 15 in the vicinity of a local high school. He was taken into custody by a Eugene Police School Resource officer and the EPD Special Investigations Unit.


He’s been lodged at the Lane County Jail, charged with Online Sexual Corruption of a Child in the First Degree. 

Case 20-00876


Police want to continue to raise awareness to this crime to prevent sexual exploitation and to help children and women who are victimized.


Tips for Parents and Guardians:

  • Monitor your child’s devices remotely and control access
  • Be aware of communications between your child and others
  • Beware of unexplained absences and behavior or sudden gifts or items they can’t afford or cash
  • Understand cyber-crime and that “no one online is anonymous”
  • If you child has a new game or app, spend time with them on it
  • Set up an area where children can use their technology with a parents presence
  • Consider not allowing your child to take a phone or computer with them into their room at night to sleep
  • Understand appropriate protocols when a child discloses issues of sexting, or sextortion. Let your child know they can report concerns to you or another trusted adult
  • Teach your child that it is o.k. to block users who make them uncomfortable
  • Understand applications such as SnapChat, TikTok, Facebook, Google Hangouts, Instagram and more
