CLAYTON — The former mayor of Clayton, Dale Kenyon, has been indicted following allegations of sexual acts against a teenager.
The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said Kenyon, 78, of 664 Riverside Drive, has been indicted on 22 counts of third-degree criminal sexual act.
In a news release, the office said Kenyon engaged in sexual acts with the victim beginning in 2009, when the child was 14 years old, and continuing through 2012.
Kenyon was arraigned Thursday and is being held at the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building on $10,000 bail.
Kenyon has also previously served as chairman of the board of Thousand Islands Emergency Rescue Service and vice chairman of the Jefferson County Planning Board.
He pleaded guilty in Clayton Village Court in 2011 to public lewdness after a neighbor claimed he exposed himself in view of a 16-year-old boy and a 12-year-old girl.
The sheriff’s office said its investigation is continuing and anyone with information is asked to called Detective Judy Goodman at 315-786-2677.
