Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Officers from the City of Bend Police Department say Patrick Green arrived in Bend on July 10 from Long Beach, Calif., to meet with the girl at the Bend Value Inn. Police say Green knowingly engaged in sexual intercourse with the female inside the motel room and admitted to knowing she was under the age of 18.

Green and the female met on social media and had been texting and exchanging picture messages for over a month, police say. The alleged perpetrator told police he came to Bend to visit the girl—and also to sightsee.



The girl's mother notified police about the matter, though police say she stated that she had never seen nor spoken to the man, and did not consent to her daughter being with him.

Police arrested Green July 12 and booked him into the Deschutes County Jail. He's charged with six charges, including rape, sodomy, online sexual corruption of a child, encouraging child sex abuse and various child pornography charges.
