A trial date is set for ac-
cused kidnapper and rapist
Russell Wayne Deviney.
The 49-year-old Everett,
Washington, man will face
trial in January. The date was
set during a hearing Wednes-
day, July 13, in Clatsop
County Circuit Court.
Deviney allegedly kid-
napped and raped a 15-year-
old California girl in May
2015 and left her in Astoria,
which, police said, was not
his intended destination.
He pleaded not guilty to
12 felony charges.
A trial was scheduled to
begin this month, but Alex-
ander Hamalian, Deviney’s
recently retained defense
lawyer, requested it be post-
poned. Judge Philip Nelson
granted the request.
Hamalian said he needs
more time to review new ev-
idence and allow expert wit-
nesses to prepare.
The defense lawyer said
in a previous court hearing
that the Deviney case is one
of the most complex he has
worked since it involves doc-
uments from different states
and various computer and
cellphone ¿les.
“My hands as a defense
attorney are tied,” Hamalian
According to court doc-
uments, the girl believed
Deviney was an 18-year-old
named James Russell, or
“JR,” who chatted with her
on Instagram. Meeting him
at a location near her home,
she was kidnapped and later
sexually assaulted, according
to documents.
Deviney allegedly kid-
napped the girl in Sanger,
California. He left the girl
and his 2004 Nissan Pickup
at McDonald’s in Astoria two
days later.
Cannon Beach Police and
FBI agents found Deviney
¿ve days after the kidnap-
ping behind a locked gate in
a privately owned wooded
area south of Cannon Beach.
A passer-by reported seeing
him and called police.
Deviney remains in custo-
dy on $1 million bail.

Allen, 37, is known to the
Seaside Police as a transient
with mental health issues.
He was indicted by a grand
jury this week on charges of
assaulting a public safety of-
¿cer, interfering with a peace
of¿cer, recklessly endanger-
ing another person, menacing
and resisting arrest.
He pleaded not guilty to
the charges Thursday during
an arraignment in Clatsop
County Circuit Court. He is
in custody in Clatsop County
Jail on $25,000 bail.
Allen is due back in court
later this month for an early
resolution conference.
