Bail set at $150K for sex offender accused of rape

EVERETT — Bail has been set at $150,000 for a registered sex offender accused of raping a developmentally delayed woman.

Timothy McCamey, 37, was booked into the Snohomish County Jail on Dec. 2 for investigation of rape and a state Department of Corrections probation violation.

The woman reportedly was with a friend and the suspect near Pacific Avenue and Broadway in Everett on Dec. 1 when the friend went off on an errand. The trio was to meet up later at the Everett Transit Center.

The suspect allegedly had sexual contact with the woman under the Pacific Avenue overpass. She reportedly said she tried to get away but couldn’t and “was scared to say anything because she thought he might hurt her worse,” according to court records.

The woman was described in court records as “a vulnerable adult due to being developmentally delayed.”

The woman later disclosed the allegations to her friend after they caught a bus at the transit center.

McCamey has a history of sex crimes dating back to childhood. He was convicted in his early teens of child molestation after admitting having sexual contact with a 5-year-old girl while “playing doctor.”

At age 15 in 1995, he pleaded guilty to unlawful imprisonment with sexual motivation. That case involved an 8-year-old girl.

In 1998, he pleaded guilty to child molestation in Snohomish County Superior Court and was sentenced to five years in prison. He acknowledged having sexual contact with two girls, 12 and 14, in a motel room. He’d been released from state lockup five days before he invited the girls to his room, according to court records.

McCamey was considered for a civil commitment through the state’s sexually violent predator law, but was found not to meet the criteria.

He has convictions for failure to register as a sex offender and perjury for providing false information while registered as a homeless sex offender.

In a sex offender registration notice, he reportedly had several aliases, including Casper and Baby Devil.
