SUTHERLIN, Ore. – A lengthy investigation has led to the arrest of a Sutherlin man on charges of sex abuse and possession of child pornography.

Cory Lee Bernhardt, 35, was arrested Thursday on charges of sodomy, sex abuse, unlawful sexual penetration, encouraging child sex abuse, and possession of materials depicting sexually explicit conduct of a child.

Investigators said they believe Bernhardt’s crimes were not associated with the business that he owned and operated in Sutherlin.

These crimes were allegedly committed over a lengthy period of time and investigators believe there may be other victims.

If you have any information about this case, or any information or alleged reports regarding Bernhardt, call the Sutherlin Police Department.
