Child Abuse Arrest In Ashland

ASHLAND, Ore. — A home-based kindergarten in Ashland was also the home of a 32-year-old man now in custody for encouraging child sexual abuse.

Local police don’t think the suspect had any involvement with the kids, but Benjamin Mycko is in jail after High Tech Crimes investigators say he downloaded images and videos of child sexual abuse from a computer at 777 Jaquelyn Street.

Though police made sure that all the kids are safe, they say over the next few days they will conduct further safety talks.
