Oregon Man Faces Sex Abuse Allegations Stemming from MySpaceSalem-News.com
The 20-year-old is suspected of targeting underage girls in Wilsonville.
(CLACKAMAS, Ore.) - The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office announces the arrest of a 20-year old Wilsonville man for what Spokesman Jim Strovink describes as "an assortment of crimes involving at least two young girls between the ages of 15 and 17."
Kyle James Green is believed to have befriended underage girls on the internet using MySpace, in public libraries and through introductions from acquaintances according to Strovink.
"It is these underage girls Green is suspected of targeting for his specific crimes."
Investigators are concerned additional victims may exist and are encouraging potential victims to come forward with any information pertaining to Green, who is reported to be unemployed, and the resident of an apartment located next to Wilsonville High School.
This apartment complex is identified as the Boulder Creek Apartments at 28830 SW Ashland Drive in Wilsonville. Kyle Green rents unit number 293 in this Boulder Creek apartment complex.
He is also known to own and operate an older model red Jeep, Cherokee.
Prior to moving to the Wilsonville area in early 2007 Green was a resident in Oregon City.
Without offering details, investigators say additional victims are providing information and more criminal cases are expected to be submitted to the Clackamas County District Attorney in the very near future. Kyle Green was arrested June 25th by Clackamas County Sheriff's Office investigators and lodged in the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Jail, for the related charges identified as:
Total bail is set at $250,000. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for this matter on July 3rd, 2007, in the Clackamas County Circuit Court in Oregon City.
It is important to point out that in Oregon, the crime of "Rape 3" is often not indicative of forcible sex. Oregon lawmakers decided a number of years ago to categorize any sex act between a minor and an adult as "rape" whether or not force was used.
The theory behind the wording is that no person under the age of 18 has the ability to provide legal consent. In many other states, the age of consent is 16 or even lower.
If Oregon were to reclassify the act of consensual sex between an adult and a minor as "statutory rape" then a good deal of confusion would thus be eliminated, and proper emphasis would again be placed on the word "rape" as a sexual act that involves violence or force.
Also, the crime of "Sodomy" in Oregon relates to any sexual act that is not intercourse. Again sodomy is a reference for anal sex, but Oregon and many other states in this event, choose the word "sodomy" to describe oral and other types of sexual contact.
Police hope that anyone with information related to Kyle James Green are encouraged to contact Detective Christie Fryett, at 503-557-2876 – reference CCSO case number 07-20778.
