BEND, OR -- A Bend man faces additional child sex abuse charges after more alleged victims are found. The first time 42-year-old Joel Hoffman was arrested, June 8, he was accused with trying to lure a young Florida girl to Central Oregon for sex.
With help from Salem and Sandy Police, detectives learned of sexually explicit conversations between Hoffman and at least two other underage girls, as well as the exchange of explicit photos. He was arrested again on Thursday.
Investigators say Hoffman traveled to Salem on two occasions to meet one victim and have sex with her. He also made arrangements to go to Sandy in the near future to meet the other one. Bend Police say this is an ongoing investigation and more charges are possible.
