North Pole Man #Charged with #Sexual Abuse of a #Minor, Possessing #Child Porn, Cruelty to #Animals

FAIRBANKS, Alaska – We have more information on 36 year old Phillip Kiser, the man who was arrested last week on multiple charges of sexual abuse of a minor.

The North Pole resident is charged with five counts of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor younger than 13, five counts of distributing pornographic materials to minors, five counts of possessing child pornography and five counts of exploitation of a minor.

All of these charges are felonies.

Kiser is also facing two charges of misdemeanor cruelty to animals for the sexual abuse of a dog.

Prosecutor Spenser Ruppert spoke during the arraignment saying (Quote) “These alleged crimes are amongst the most vile and the most damaging crime that can be committed by a person upon others.

He stands accused of abusing multiple children in despicable ways, of abusing animals sexually and of videotaping those acts and perpetuating those acts upon others by showing those videos to them.” (End quote)

District court Judge Earl Peterson set Kiser’s bail at 1 million dollars, citing the need to protect the public from him, and that the serious nature of his accused crimes would encourage Kiser to flee.
