A 27-year-old John Day Man was arrested for numerous sexual abuse charges on Friday.

Kevin Andrew Brown was charged with two counts of first-degree online sexual corruption of a child younger than 16, two counts of third degree-sexual abuse, two counts of sexual misconduct, two counts of contributing to the sexual delinquency of a minor, two counts of second-degree online sexual corruption of a child, two counts of third-degree rape and two counts of third-degree sodomy, according to court records. The charges include eight felonies and six misdemeanors.

The incidents occurred between March and December, according to Grant County Deputy District Attorney Mara Houck

He was released Monday after being issued an order to not contact the victim and not to have contact with any females under 18 without third-party adult supervision.

“The court and state didn’t feel he was a danger to the public or the victim at this time,” Houck said.

Brown was denied a public defender after it was deemed he was financially able to pay for his own attorney. He will next appear in court for a status check on Feb. 15, Houck said.
