PORTLAND, Ore. -- Oregon’s top judge for settling disputes between citizens and state agencies is facing child pornography allegations. Chief Administrative Law Judge John Mann was booked into Washington County Jail last month on ten counts of first-degree encouraging child sexual abuse.

He was released on bail hours later. A spokesperson for the Beaverton Police Department, which investigated the case, says Mann was arraigned Monday in Washington County Circuit Court. A spokesperson for Gov. Kate Brown said Mann had been placed on unpaid administrative leave amid the investigation. It wasn't immediately known if he has a lawyer to comment on his behalf.
