MCSO counselor charged with misconduct

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – A 38-year-old man who worked with the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office is scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday on allegations of ID theft and official misconduct. 

Bryce Merrill was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on Tuesday morning but then immediately released, according to jail records. 

Merrill is employed as a counselor within the Corrections Division for the sheriff’s office. 

A 6-count indictment was filed against Merrill on Feb. 12, according to court records. The indictment alleges that in March 2017, unlawfully used the identities of inmates inside the jail system.
