A Rogue Valley lawyer was arrested on misdemeanor charges accusing him of paying cash for sex with a woman at a Grants Pass motel.

Devin Norwood Driver, 32, was booked in the Josephine County Jail Wednesday on one misdemeanor count each of commercial sexual solicitation and prostitution, according to jail records. He was released the same day after paying a $1,000 bond on $10,000 bail.

According to Grants Pass police, evidence in the prostitution investigation surfaced on Monday while detectives were investigating an unrelated narcotics case at the same Motel 6 where the alleged encounter occurred.

The woman involved cooperated with investigators, according to a press release from the police department issued Wednesday evening, and the woman “provided evidence of the illegal encounter.“

As of early Thursday morning, Josephine County Circuit Court records showed that the District Attorney’s office had not yet filed charges stemming from Driver’s arrest. Oregon court records show no prior criminal history for Driver.

Driver is an attorney with the Grants Pass law firm Davis, Freudenberg, Day & Driver who practices “family law, criminal defense, landlord tenant and general civil litigation,” according to the law firm’s website as of shortly after 7 a.m. Thursday.

The firm’s page states that Driver is a board member of the Boys & Girls Club of the Rogue Valley; however, the nonprofit’s web page does not list him as a 2021 member of its board of directors.

Oregon State Bar records show that Driver has been a member since September 2015, and has had no prior disciplinary history or sanctions.
