A City of Parma councilman has been charged with lewd conduct with a minor. The Canyon County Sheriff's Office said the arrest of 36-year-old Myron Jenkins came after a 14-year-old girl said she had been the victim of sexual touching on two separate occasions earlier this year. Jenkins was taken into custody on July 17 and booked into the Canyon County Jail.

Investigators said that during an interview with Jenkins, he admitted to touching the female minor in a sexual manner. He also reportedly admitted to telling the girl not to say anything about the incidents because he could go to jail.

Jenkins is being held on a $50,000 bond. His preliminary hearing in Canyon County Court is slated for Tuesday, July 31.

Jenkins was elected to the Parma City Council in November 2017. His four-year term on the council runs until January 2022.
