If it’s a day ending in “y,” a liberal protest leader has been caught committing heinous crimes. The head of an anti-Trump “resistance” cell has been arrested on charges of sexually abusing a minor:

Micah Rhodes, who was expected in court Monday, is a leader of the protest group Portland’s Resistance. The 23-year-old Rhodes is already a registered sex offender, according to KOIN, and was previously arrested for disorderly conduct in connection with anti-Trump protests after the election.

Rhodes was first taken into custody at an anti-Trump protest on Jan. 25.

Rhodes allegedly met the teenage boy on gay dating app Grindr. The teen told police that Rhodes knew he was a minor before they had sex, but that the two did so on multiple occasions anyway. The charges are for statutory, non-forced rape, local news outlets are reporting.

As reported by KOIN, Rhodes also admitted to having sex with an underage female. According to court records, Rhodes became a registered sex offender after convictions of first-degree sexual abuse and first-degree sodomy; however, his name isn’t listed in the public database as he’s not considered predatory.

Rhodes has lead several anti-Trump protests in Portland, including one involving dozens of high school students.
