Woodburn Police Officer Charged With Online Sexual Corruption of a Child, Sex Abuse and Sodomy

SALEM, Ore. – A Woodburn police officer has been placed on administrative leave after he was charged with online sexual corruption of a child, sex abuse and sodomy.

Daniel Kerbs, 29, is accused of six counts of sex abuse and six counts of sodomy against a girl between September 2013 and November 2014. The alleged crimes took place in Tigard, and police say Kerbs was acquainted with the victim’s family.

Kerbs is also facing one charge of online sex corruption of a child related to a March 2014 incident.

He posted bail and was released.

Meanwhile, Kerb’s northeast Salem neighbors were stunned to hear the news.

“It’s a scary thought that somebody that is so low key that that’s going on in their life, and they’re just living, they’re seeming like they’re living a regular life and they’re not,” said Heather Watson, who lives in Kerbs’ neighborhood.

Kerbs was hired by the Woodburn Police Department in January 2015 as a patrol officer.

He was placed on administrative leave Wednesday.

Kerbs is due to be arraigned in Washington County Court at 8:30 a.m. on Aug. 8.

According to a story from the Woodburn Independent, Kerbs was recognized by the Oregon Peace Officers Association in November 2016 for saving a baby’s life.
