EVERET, Wash. – A former Everett pub owner who was arrested on more than 20 felony sex charges is now out of custody.
Christian Sayre, 35, the former owner of Anchor Pub, was initially charged with two counts of second-degree rape and eight counts of indecent liberty in January over incidents that allegedly happened at the bar.
In most of these incidents, victims, both male and female, said they went to the Anchor Pub, had a few drinks, and then passed out. Upon awakening, the victims believed they had been sexually assaulted. Many say they were drugged.
New court documents have added more charges of sexual assault, rape and indecent liberty against Sayre.
Court documents say 16 of the alleged crimes occurred in Snohomish County while eight others occurred in Oregon, where Sayre lived for a time.
Court documents also indicate that one of the victims was a child. In new charging documents, Sayre was charged with four counts of third-degree rape of a child for incidents involving a 15-year-old in 2012.
He was also charged with two counts of first-degree possession of depictions of a minor engaging in sexually explicit behavior. The Everett Herald reported that hard drives, memory cards and phones seized from Sayre’s home contained sexually explicit videos and photos of the 15-year-old he allegedly assaulted.
Sayre has been arrested four times in six months for crimes related to sexual assault. He posted bail the previous three times.
For this arrest, his fourth, a judge set bail at $1 million. Sayre has since posted bail and been released from jail.
