A 25-year old Kuna man charged with lewd conduct for having sexual contact with a 15-year-old may have more victims, according to the Ada County Sheriff’s Office.

Jakob M. Moench was arrested at his home near Linder and Deer Flat Road on Tuesday, January 26th.

ACSO started investigating Moench last week after receiving information that Moench was having illegal sexual contact with a girl.

The girl was reported as a runaway a few days after the initial report and detectives found the girl at Moench’s home on Saturday morning before taking her home.

After Moench was booked into the Ada County Jail, a different family saw his mugshot and reported to the ACSO that a family member had underwent a similar occurrence.  The case is still being investigated.

If anyone knows anything about either of those cases or has information about other possible victims, the should call Ada County Sheriff’s detectives at 577-3734.

The crime of lewd conduct is punishable by up to life in prison.

Moench is set to make his initial court appearance Wednesday afternoon.
