Medford Man Faces 24 Additional Sex Abuse Charges
Michael Dean Murray, 59, of Medford, already jailed on sex charges was arraigned Thursday on 24 additional sex charges and pornography. He pleaded not guilty to all charges in Jackson County Circuit Court.
Murray was originally arrested September 9th and has been in the Jackson County Jail since then. The additional charges come from the discovery of photographs on Murray’s computer. Officials declined to say if the victims in the photos were local.
Murray’s bail is set at $1 million and he has been ordered to wear an electronic tracking device if he is released from jail. He is to have no contact with alleged victims or their residences and no contact with minors.
A pre-trial conference is scheduled for January 13th and a 12-member jury trial is scheduled on February 26th on the earlier charges, to which Murray has also pleaded not guilty.
