An employee working with the outdoor education program that is a rite of passage for Portland sixth graders has been indicted on 54 counts of child sex abuse.
Jared White worked in the Outdoor School program from March 2014 through Oct. 22, 2015. He was a volunteer at Namanu, Sandy River and Arrah Wanna Outdoor School sites between September 2011 and April 2013. In addition, he was a student leader at the Adams Outdoor School site between September 2008 and May 2011.
He never worked at Camp Howard, the Catholic camp that also hosts Outdoor School.
The victims in the indictment were acquaintances and not students who attended Outdoor School. But authorities think there may be more victims.
