61-year-old Boise man charged with three counts of sexual abuse of a child 

A 61-year-old Boise man who showed a pre-teenage girl sexually explicit images and had illegal sexual contact with her over a six year period will make his initial court appearance next week.

Otis M. Disbennett is charged with three counts of sexual abuse of a child under the age of 16.

Deputies arrested Disbennett at his south Boise-area home Tuesday morning. Disbennett posted a $5,000 bond and was released from jail later that day.

Deputies began their investigation in late January when they got a call from a third party. The victim is well known to Disbennett.

Detectives immediately put a safety plan in place and began their investigation, which resulted in prosecutors issuing a warrant for Disbennett’s arrest on Monday.

Disbennett is a former juvenile probation officer who worked in Kuna before leaving that job about five years ago. Detectives are concerned there may be other victims.

Anyone with information about Disbennett or has knowledge about other possible victims should call detectives at 577-3702 or email jjohnson@adaweb.net

The crime of sexual abuse of a child under the age of 16 is punishable by up to 25 years in prison.

Disbennett is set to make his initial court appearance Tuesday.
