The person behind the anti-Trump protests in Portland, Oregon has been taken into custody on charges of sexual abuse to a teenage boy.
Micah Rhodes is the leader of Portland's Resistance a movement that led to disorderly anti-Trump protests. The 23-year-old alleged child abuser was in court Monday.
According to KGW, sexual abuse accusations are statutory, non-forced rape, but Rhodes is a registered sex offender and a rather offensive person in general. He was previously booked for disorderly conduct during the anti-Trump protests after the election.
He was arrested at a protest on January 25th, interviewed by PPB Sex Crimes detectives and admitted having sex with an underage boy. He allegedly met the boy on gay dating app Grindr. The boy told police that Rhodes knew he was a minor before they had sexual intercourse.
Rhodes said in a detective's affidavit that he had "reservations about getting in trouble" for having sex with a minor, but what the heck, he proceeded anyway. This was in 2015 when the teen, who claimed the sex was consensual, was 17.
But boys weren't his only victims. Along with these accusations against Rhodes, KOIN.com reported that he is accused of having sex with an underage girl, which he admitted, while he was being held on January 25th.
The girl said that Rhodes knew at the time she was underage, but he tends not to think with anything above his shoulders.
