Sex offender extradited to face charges in Hillsborough

TAMPA - A 50-year-old convicted sex offender has been extradited from Washington to face charges he molested another child.

Timothy Alan Oates is accused of molesting a child younger than 12 last month.

Oates was released from Florida State Prison in 2004 after serving a 10-year sentence for kidnapping and indecent assault on a child younger than 16.

In 1987, he was sentenced to 27 years for ransom, attempted sexual battery on an adult and indecent assault on a child younger than 16, according to state prison records, which show he was released in 1991.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office brought him back from Skagit County, Wash., on Thursday.
