Ore. Father And Son Accused Of Sex Crimes

OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) — The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office arrested a father and son accused of sexually abusing a child at their home in Canby.

Sgt. Robert Wurpes said Wednesday that 61-year-old Duane Shottenkirk and 35-year-old Earnest Shottenkirk, were taken into custody late last week.

Both men were charged with first-degree sex abuse, and the elder Shottenkirk is also accused of distributing child pornography.

Wurpes says the child was 6 years old when the alleged abuse occurred in 2011, and investigators are searching for other possible victims.

According to KGW, Duane Shottenkirk has lived in Washington, Oregon and California.
