Linn County Sheriff Michelle Duncan reports that on May 19, 2022, her detectives arrested John Roger Mullner Jr., 58, of Lebanon, after an investigation into an alleged sex abuse.

The investigation began last month when a 13-year-old child disclosed they were sexually abused by Mullner over the last three years. The investigation was presented to a Linn County Grand Jury where they returned an indictment for eleven counts of Sexual Abuse in the First Degree.

John Mullner Jr. was arrested at his residence without incident and lodged in the Linn County Jail.
