A Bingham County man is being held on $250,000 bond for 21 felony counts of lewd conduct with a child under the age of 16.
Oscar Ramirez Acevedo was arrested by the Bingham County Sheriff’s Office after it received reports of sexual abuse of a minor on Monday. An investigation led to Acevedo’s arrest on Wednesday.
Assistant Bingham County Prosecutor Paul Rogers said all 21 felony counts appear to involve one child under the age of 16. He said the allegations were reported by a family member of the victim.
Acevedo is expected to appear for a preliminary hearing on November 3 in Blackfoot.
