NEWPORT, Ore. -- A Lincoln County prosecutor was charged Monday for trying to get sexual favors from a woman.

Attorney General John Kroger's office said 58-year-old Rand Overton was being indicted for official misconduct and attempted coercion.

Court documents showed on several occasions in 2009 Overton made sexually suggestive comments and abused his job status by trying to obtain favors from a woman who owed child support.

Documents alleged Overton "unlawfully and intentionally attempt(ed) to compel" the woman.
