Oregon State Police arrested 36 year old James Wilson on Friday after a Klamath County grand jury indicted him on charges he sexually abused a young male.

 

Lt. Gregg Hastings with OSP says they were called into investigate.

 

"Well, we're investigating those allegations that Wilson sexually abused a young male who was a minor at the time over a period of several years.  Mr. Wilson had been involved with Boy Scouts in Prineville for several years.  Once we brought these allegations to their attention, his assocation with that organization ended."

 

Wilson faces charges of sex abuse in the first degree.

 

OSP believes there may be more victims out there and would like to hear from anyone with information on this case.

 

Wilson was also the I-T Director for the city of Prineville, but is now on paid leave.
