Bethany Man Lured Boys & Sexually Abused Them

Written by Christina Kemp on March 4, 2014

No person, no parent should ever do something like this. A father is now behind bars for luring boys to his home where he sexually abused them.

Detectives say  he has been on their radar since last year.. 39-year-old Jonathon Black is a husband and a father. Officials say that he made his Bethany home very “teenager friendly”. He has been charged with 17 counts of sex abuse, luring a minor, and giving pot to a minor.

So far five boys, the youngest being 12 years old, have come forward.  Sgt. Bob Ray told our news partner KGW there is a high likelihood more boys will come forward.

“We’re really reaching out to parents whose children may have been in contact with him to talk to their children”, said Sgt. Ray.

Black turned himself in on Sunday. He is being held in the Washington County Jail on $1.7 million bail.
