A Lebanon man was charged with first-degree sex abuse in Linn County Circuit Court on Friday afternoon.

Bernard Makowski, 40, had his bail set at $50,000 by Judge David Delsman, according to Oregon’s online court database.

The next hearing in the case was scheduled for May 26.

Makowski is accused of unlawfully and knowingly subjecting a child who was mentally incapacitated or physically helpless to sexual contact. The Lebanon Police Department investigated the case.

First-degree sex abuse is a Measure 11 crime in Oregon that carries a mandatory minimum sentence of more than six years in prison.

Makowski has no criminal history in Oregon, according to state court records.
