Veterinarian accused of stalking his ex-girlfriend set for trial in June

ARLINGTON — The criminal trial for an Arlington veterinarian accused of stalking his ex-girlfriend is scheduled to start in June.

Timothy Cavanagh, 60, recently requested a leave of absence from his role as an elected commissioner for Cascade Valley Hospital, also known as Snohomish County Hospital District 3.

He notified the hospital this week that he might be unavailable for up to three months.

Before that happened, there was talk of the hospital moving its public meetings. Cavanagh is not allowed on the grounds because his ex-girlfriend is an employee there and obtained a protection order.

Cavanagh is charged in Island County Superior Court with felony domestic-violence stalking and burglary. He is accused of breaking into the woman’s house on Camano Island. He reportedly was found hiding in the woods nearby.

He also has pending misdemeanor cases in Snohomish and Skagit counties.

Cavanagh is accused of violating a protection order by going to the hospital Jan. 20. He also was accused of a DUI and hit-and-run in Anacortes. Those cases have court hearings scheduled in the coming weeks.
