Auchincloss will spend 30 days in jail for sex crimes

Ashland resident James Auchincloss, the 63-year-old half brother of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, pleaded guilty to two felony counts of first-degree encouraging child sexual abuse today and will spend 30 days in the Jackson County Jail.

Auchincloss and co-defendant Dennis Vickoren of Eagle Point entered pleas on the felony charges linked to the possession of child pornography.

Auchincloss was taken directly to jail to begin serving two concurrent 30-day sentences. Vickoren also will serve 30 days in jail, but will report to the jail Sept. 20.

Each man also will be on probation for three years and register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

Prosecutors said possession of the lewd and lascivious photographs of prepubescent children was the only crime investigators found and no other victims had been found.
