Portland’s Anti-Trump Protest Chief Charged With Sexual Abuse of Teenage Boy
One of the key figures behind the anti-Trump protests in Portland, Oregon has been taken into custody and is facing sexual abuse charges after a police investigation into his relationship with a teenage boy, according to local media outlets.
Micah Rhodes, a ring-leader of Portland’s Resistance that led disorderly anti-Trump protests, was expected in court Monday. KGW reports that sexual abuse accusations are statutory, non-forced rape.
According to KOIN.com, the 23-year-old activist is a registered sex offender and was previously arrested for disorderly conduct during the anti-Trump protests after the election.
Rhodes was arrested at an anti-Trump protest on January 25. He was interviewed by PPB Sex Crimes detectives and admitted having sex with an underage male.
