BEND, OR -- A former Bend resident faces a number of child sex abuse charges. 32-year old Micah Kennedy is accused of online sexual corruption of a child, luring a minor and encouraging child sex abuse. He was arrested more than three weeks ago for using various social media sites to contact and pursue minor children for sexual purposes.
Following his arrest, a search warrant led officers to multiple images of child pornography on his computer and and he now faces additional charges of encouraging child sexual abuse. Kennedy is currently at the Deschutes County Jail; bail is set at $350,000. Bend Police are asking anyone with information about this case to call detectives.
