ASHLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Authorities are accusing a former Ashland cafe owner of providing drugs to minors in exchange for sexual activity.
The Ashland Daily Tidings reports (http://bit.ly/1cuJSwr ) that 45-year-old Christopher Ian Iverson was arrested Friday on charges of third-degree rape, sodomy and sexual abuse, and other charges. He faces 28 total counts.
Iverson was owner of the Culture Works Cafe, which has since closed. Police said multiple people came forward to say that Iverson was involved in a sexual relationship with one or more minor females who worked at the cafe or frequented the establishment. Investigators also believe that Iverson would provide drugs to minors in exchange for sexual activity.
Police suspect there may be more victims in the case and are asking anyone with information to contact the authorities.
