PILOT ROCK, Ore. (AP) — Police arrested a 15-year-old Eastern Oregon boy on suspicion of sex crimes against a girl younger than 12.
The youth from the small community of Pilot Rock faces charges of rape, sodomy, using a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct and sexual assault of an animal.
Umatilla County court records do not indicate if he has entered a plea. A judge set his bail at $50,000 and he is lodged at a juvenile detention facility in Walla Walla.
The East Oregonian newspaper reports that three adults from Pilot Rock recently pleaded not guilty to similar charges. They are accused of raping a different girl younger than 12 on multiple occasions and taking photos or videos.
