HILLSBORO, Ore.- On September 23, 2020, Judge Eric Buchér sentenced Jordan Adam Rosas to two years in prison after a Washington County jury found the defendant guilty of unlawful delivery and possession of heroin (substantial quantity), unlawful delivery and possession of cocaine, unlawful delivery and possession of Fentanyl, unlawful delivery and possession of alprazolam (Xanax), and giving false information to a police officer. Deputy District Attorney Mitchell Diesko prosecuted the case against Mr. Rosas.

Beaverton police pulled over Mr. Rosas on June 8, 2020 after they observed him speeding along Highway 26. Officers immediately noticed that Mr. Rosas appeared very nervous as they began to speak with him. He gave police a false name and initially refused to exit the vehicle. Eventually, Mr. Rosas gave police his true name and admitted he had drug paraphernalia in the vehicle.

Police searched Mr. Rosas’ vehicle and found more than 21 grams of heroin, dealer amounts of cocaine and dozens of prescription pills. They also discovered a digital scale, 50 plastic baggies and multiple pieces of identification which didn’t belong to the defendant.

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office wishes to acknowledge the work of the Beaverton Police Department on this case.

Mr. Rosas will be transferred to the Oregon Department of Corrections to begin serving his sentence.

HILLSBORO, Ore.- On September 22, 2020, Judge Oscar Garcia sentenced Hugo Alexis Zaldana-Mendoza to 100 months in prison. On September 17, 2020, a Washington County jury found Mr. Zaldana-Mendoza guilty of first-degree burglary, first-degree sex abuse and first-degree sexual penetration. Senior Deputy District Attorney Allison Brown prosecuted the case against the defendant. A jury originally convicted the defendant in 2015, but the case was reversed by the Oregon Court of Appeals and sent back to the Washington County Circuit Court for a new trial.

In the early morning hours of June 1, 2015, the victim awoke suddenly to the sound of a barking dog. She then spotted the defendant as he walked into her room and sat on her bed. She immediately recognized the defendant as a neighbor from her same apartment complex. The defendant did not have permission to enter the victim’s home.

The defendant then sexually assaulted the victim. The victim’s young son began to cry, and she used this as an opportunity to escape the bedroom. She then locked herself and her son in the bathroom for more than ten minutes. She then exited the bathroom and ordered the defendant to leave her home upon realizing he was still inside. She immediately called police after he left.

Beaverton police responded and spotted the defendant in the apartment complex. He admitted to detectives that he had climbed up to the victim’s second-floor balcony to gain entrance to her apartment. He then claimed that the sexual contact had been consensual.

This office wishes to acknowledge the bravery of the victim in reporting the crimes committed by the defendant. This office also wishes to thank the Beaverton Police Department, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and the Oregon State Police Forensic Laboratory for their work on this case. The defendant will be transferred to the Oregon Department of Corrections to resume serving his sentence.
