A Prineville man, who was a scout master with the Prineville-area Boy Scouts, turned himself in to Oregon State Police (OSP) detectives after he was indicted and a warrant issued for his arrest for Sex Abuse in the First Degree.

On April 18, 2014, JAMES ALLEN WILSON, age 36, from Prineville, turned himself in at the Deschutes County Jail. WILSON was indicted by a Klamath County Grand Jury and an arrest warrant issued. Arrangements were made for WILSON to surrender himself at the Deschutes County Jail.

OSP detectives were investigating allegations that WILSON sexually abused a male who was a minor at the time of the alleged crimes over a several year period. WILSON was involved with the Boy Scouts organization since his childhood and was a Scout Master for several years in Prineville. His association with the organization ended after the investigation started.

OSP Criminal Investigations Division believes there may be other victims and is interested in speaking with anyone who has information related to this investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Mitch Meyer at (541) 633-2225 or email mitch.meyer@state.or.us.
