EUGENE, Ore. (KOIN 6) — Kiah Lawson, the ex-boyfriend of Portland gay rights leader Terry Bean, pleaded not guilty on all counts to various sex charges.

Lawson, 25, was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center Thursday morning after being taken into custody by detectives with the Portland Police Bureau’s Sex Crimes Unit.

Lawson and Bean are both accused of having a sexual encounter with a 15-year-old in Eugene last year.

A Lane County grand jury issued a secret indictment and warrant for Lawson’s arrest.

The indictment lists two counts of third-degree sodomy and one count of third-degree sexual abuse.

In a Eugene court Friday afternoon, the attorney for the victim, a 15-year-old, made a motion for a protective order of his identity. The judge granted the motion and the present indictment remained sealed for the moment.

Lori Deveny, the teen’s attorney, said, “He’s been traumatized and he’ll be living with that trauma. It’s important that the two adults involved he held to account for that.”

“Something like this can follow a victim for their life,” she said. “As we go to electronic  court records, everything becomes searchable.”

Lawson was also ordered not to use the name of the alleged victim in any future postings on social media, and Lawson agreed.

Kiah Lawson’s mother speaks

Lawson’s mother, Tim Nouanemany, told KOIN 6 News after the hearing her son never had contact with the teen, and that Terry Bean arranged the encounter.

She also said Lawson is himself the victim, a pawn used by Bean to “get young kids.”

She called it “grooming,” and claimed several times Bean gave her son alcohol and Viagra as part of the grooming process to entice the teen.

Nouanemany is sticking by her son and said she just wants the truth to come out. She also hopes he gets to take a lie detector test.

Lawson, she said, went from being a happy young man last year after first meeting Bean to someone who is not himself lately.

Terry Bean will face a judge December 3.
