KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — A former Jackson County psychiatrist who set booby traps on mountain-biking trails outside Ashland apologized to his victims and the community Wednesday before being sentenced to 30 days in jail. Jackson Tyler Dempsey said he still was trying to figure out why he strung nylon cords between trees and dragged wood across paths used by mountain bikers in the Ashland Creek watershed last summer.  Dempsey also has to pay $2,450 restitution and stay off the trail system in the Ashland watershed for two years while he’s on probation.
