The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is looking for possible additional victims in a Colton sex-abuse case.

In May 2014, the Sheriff's Office -- in cooperation with the Washington State Patrol Missing and Exploited Children Task Force -- began an investigation of Kenneth Scott Carroll, age 42, on multiple charges of sexual-abuse crimes involving children.

Carroll's alleged crimes would have occurred in or around Colton, Oregon from 1998 to early 2002, while he was coaching boys' wrestling and football in the Colton School District and youth sports programs.

Carroll was arrested in Montana and was extradited to Oregon. Kenneth Scott Carroll is currently lodged at the Clackamas County Jail.

There are 4 victims currently but we believe there are more that have yet to be identified.

Carroll will be arraigned today (September 25, 2014) at 3:00 pm from the jail using the video arraignment system. He has been charged with 9 sex-abuse crimes, and his bail has been set at $250,000.
