Barr Facing More Charges


YAKIMA, Wash. -- Paul Barr, the former karate instructor accused of raping his students, is facing more charges after Yakima Police located a third victim.

Detectives say Barr will be charged with first-degree sexual misconduct with a minor, because the victim was 16 at the time of the offense.

Police also recovered five thousand images of child pornography from Barr's home computer. Detectives say it was the most that anyone at the department had ever seen.

Paul Barr, 44, is already facing multiple charges for offenses against two other victims. Those include three counts of second-degree child rape.

Each count carries a maximum sentence of life in prison.
