Pasco Man Arrested for Trading Gifts for Teen Sexual Favors
A 55-year-old Pasco man is in the Franklin County jail on multiple charges after being arrested last Friday.
Kirk Len Beers is facing four charges in connection with allegedly using gifts in exchange for sexual favors involving a female teen.
Police say the girl told them Beers began buying her phones, watches and drugs for her, regularly messaged her on Facebook, and several times during their 'relationship' groped her.
She said the incidents began in 2019, and Beers reportedly told her he was selling vibrators. He asked her to allow him to record video of her using the devices, so he could tell 'customers' how well they worked. It appears multiple recordings were made.
The girl, who is under 16, also said the groping occurred several times. Police also report Beers committed many of the same acts with another girl, who was under 18.
According to the Franklin County Jail roster, here's his booking information:
"CHILD MOLESTATION-3 F / 72 / SXINVHOLD / / NO / ACTI CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE-OTHER F / 72 / SXINVHOLD / / NO / ACTI SEXUAL EXPLOITATION OF A MINOR PHOTOGRAPH/LIVE PERFORMANCE F / 72 / SXINVHOLD / / NO / ACTI COMMUNICATE W/MINOR-IMMORAL PURP M / 72 / SXINVHOLD / / NO /ACTI"
No word as to when his next court appearance will be. Police did not say how or when they learned of the allegations.
