A 35-year-old Corvallis man is facing sexual abuse charges for allegedly abusing a young girl last week, Benton County Circuit Court records show.

Allen Kenneth Flaming is charged with two counts of first-degree sexual abuse for incidents that allegedly occurred Oct. 5, according to a charging document filed by state prosecutors on Wednesday. The charges are Measure 11 offenses carrying minimum six-year prison terms upon conviction.

According to the document, the alleged victim was born in 2011.

Corvallis police arrested Flaming on Tuesday and took him to the Benton County Jail.

Flaming appeared in court Wednesday via video conference from the jail. Defense attorney Rob Corl entered not guilty pleas to the charges on Flaming’s behalf.

Deputy District Attorney Kristen Farnworth requested a $200,000 bond in the case. She also asked that Flaming not be allowed to have contact with any minors should he be released from jail.

Judge Locke Williams imposed the requested bond and release condition.

Flaming’s case is set for a status check hearing on Oct. 23.
