Four new charges of sexual abuse filed against youth mentor

SANTA ROSA (KRON)—Four additional charges of sexual abuse were filed Thursday morning against a former Boys and Girls Club employee in Sonoma County Superior Court.

Paul Dwayne Kilgore, 68, of Sonoma is charged with seven felony counts of sexual abuse and committing lewd acts with a child under 14.

Kilgore was first charged with two counts of continuously abusing two preteen boys at the Parkpoint Health Club in Healdsburg back in August.

A third count was added Thursday morning regarding that same incident.

Since the charges were filed, a third underage victim came forward accusing Kilgore of sexual abuse. This added three more counts to the complaint on Thursday, according to Deputy District Attorney Javier Vaca.

The latest reported sexual abuse happened between 2010 and 2016. Vaca did not say where it happened.

Kilgore postponed entering a plea until Nov. 3. He faces up to 15 years to life in prison if he is convicted.

Kilgore resigned from his job at the Boys and Girls Club of Sonoma Valley three years ago, Boys and Girls Clubs of Sonoma Valley president Robert Hughes said.

Healdsburg police said the lewd acts happened when Kilgore would take young boys on overnight trips.

KRON4 News has found Kilgore could be tied to more cases over a 30-year-period.

He is being held in Sonoma County Jail on a $1 million bail.
