Redmond man arrested for alleged child molestation in a church

A member of a Redmond church was arrested and charged with child molestation after a victim came forward. His accuser claimed the molestation, which occurred in 2020, happened inside a church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints during a church service.

44-year-old Buckland Darrell was out on bail, awaiting trial on another charge of child sexual abuse.

Detectives said both his alleged targets were boys under 10, and the abuse happened with their parents nearby.

Darrell was charged with a separate incident of child molestation last year following an investigation by the King County Sheriff’s Office, according to court documents. He was arrested and released on bail.

Redmond investigators said it’s possible Darrell has victimized other children, as well. Darrell is currently being held at the King County Jail on $200,000.
