According to court documents, the parent of a new alleged victim contacted another alleged victim and disclosed possible sexual abuse by Kenney in early April of 2023.

According to court documents, Olmsted County law enforcement spoke to a child until 13, who described sexual abuse between 2018 and 2021.

Kenney is scheduled to appear in court on the 2021 and 2022 criminal sexual conduct charges May 1, with a jury trial scheduled to begin May 8.

In the interim, Kenney remains in the Olmsted County Adult Detention Center, as his bail was revoked in December 2022 after the McLeod child told law enforcement he had molested her while the 2021 charges were pending.

He is also scheduled to appear on the 2023 charges May 5.
