PORTLAND, Ore. – A day after one of the co-founders of the nation’s largest homosexual activist organization was arrested on child sex abuse charges, his former boyfriend is also behind bars for the exact same charges.
As previously reported, Terrance Bean, 66, of Portland was taken into custody at his home on Wednesday by the Portland, Oregon Police Bureau Sex Crimes Unit following an indictment by a Lane County Grand Jury. He was booked at the Multnomah County Jail and released after posting 10 percent of his $50,000 bail.
Bean is facing two counts of third-degree sodomy, a felony, and one count of third-degree sex abuse, a misdemeanor. The charges stem from an ongoing investigation that involves an alleged sexual encounter with a 15-year-old boy. Police state that there may be additional victims involved.
On Thursday, Bean’s former love interest, 25-year old Kiah Lawson, was also taken into custody on sodomy and sexual abuse charges. The Oregonian reports that both Bean and Lawson are accused of having sex with the teen at a hotel in Eugene after meeting the boy on the Internet. Lawson is expected to be arraigned today in Lane County Court.
