Robbery suspect expected to plead guilty

SHADY COVE — Bruce Ryan Satterlee is expected to plead guilty to second-degree robbery Thursday for his part in the Shady Cove PremierWest bank job in November, officials said.

Satterlee, 27, is scheduled to enter the plea at 11 a.m. in Jackson County Circuit Court. Second-degree robbery is a Measure 11 crime that carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 70 months in prison.

He was arrested Dec. 7 at his home in the Rogue River RV park on Highway 62. He has been lodged in jail since his arrest.

In addition, Satterlee faces a first-degree criminal mistreatment charge stemming from the beating death of toddler Caleb David Hearne last year.

The boy's mother Trisha Marie Torresan, 25, is serving a 3.5-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to first-degree criminally negligent homicide for delivering the killing blow to her son last February.

Satterlee was dating Torresan at the time and was believed to have known about the abuse that led to Caleb's death. The couple have since separated.

No trial date in the Hearne case has been set.
