The manager of a Papa Murphy's store in Woodburn went before a Marion County judge Monday.
Shannon Walls is charged with third-degree sex abuse. Police arrested him last month after they said an employee came forward accusing him of touching her inappropriately at work.
Police report that Walls later apologized to the victim over the phone.
Walls is due back in court in early January for a plea hearing.
