Redmond Man Arrested for Child Molestation


Redmond Police detectives arrested a local man last week after he allegedly had sexual contact with a male minor in 2020 while attending The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Redmond. Buckland L. Darrell, 44, of Redmond, has been charged with first-degree child molestation. 

The victim recently came forward with more details from the 2020 incident, leading to Darrell’s arrest.

In 2022, Darrell was charged with a separate incident of first-degree child molestation in another jurisdiction. Darrell was arrested for this offense and released on bail last year.

The two cases have similarities in that the victims were both male and under ten years of age, and the incidents occurred near or in the presence of the victims’ parents. 

Evidence from the investigations led to Redmond detectives arresting Darrell on Wednesday, March 15, 2023. He is being held on $200,000 bail at King County Jail. 

Darrell has attended many church events and gatherings. Redmond police believe there are potentially more minor victims and are asking anyone with information to please contact the Redmond Police Department tip line at 425-556-2500.
