The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office began their investigation late 2016. McLaughlin was first arrested in December after a search warrant was ordered on his home. Further investigation led to the discovery of more victims.
A grand jury indicted 46-year-old Donald McLaughlin on charges, including sexual abuse, on Wednesday. McLaughlin is the owner of White City Metals and Klamath City Metals. McLaughlin’s bail is set at $1 million.
