MEDFORD – A man lodged in the Jackson County Jail faces nearly three dozen felony sexual abuse and pornography charges. His bail is set at $1,000,000.
Darin Lee Mullica, 41, was arrested on January 22, 2015, in Littleton, Colorado, on a Jackson County fugitive warrant. He was transferred to the Jackson County Jail, arriving February 26.
Mullica was indicted on a total of 32 charges: Sexual Abuse in the Second Degree (15 counts); Using a Child in a Display of Sexually Explicit Conduct (six counts); Encouraging Child Sexual Abuse in the First Degree (five counts); Possession of Materials Depicting Sexually Explicit Conduct of a Child in the First Degree (five counts); and, Unlawful Delivery of Methamphetamine to a Minor.
