HILLSBORO, Ore.- On June 18, 2019, Washington County Judge Ted Sims sentenced Anthony Michael Delarosa to five years in prison. He also ordered Delarosa to pay $800 in court-imposed fines. On June 12, 2019, Delarosa was convicted of all charges brought against him including two counts of Coercion, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Menacing Constituting Domestic Violence, Strangulation and Fourth-Degree Assault Constituting Domestic Violence. Deputy District Attorney Matt Lehman prosecuted the case against Delarosa.

On December 4, 2018, officers responded to a domestic violence call at a Beaverton apartment complex. Arriving officers met with a female victim who first made the call. She told investigators that Delarosa attacked her during an argument. The victim described how Delarosa grabbed her by the face and neck and pinned her to the bed. He then punched her multiple times in the face causing bruising and swelling to her cheek and head. She was also bleeding from her ear when officers first arrived.

Officers spoke to the victim at the scene and she provided details on several other instances of physical abuse at the hands of Delarosa over the span of nearly two years. The victim testified about these events in court, detailing one episode in which Delarosa became angry and threatened to use a knife to cut her face. He then told her if she ever called police to report him, he would carry out that threat.

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office would like to acknowledge Beaverton Police Officers Amanda Pickar, Josh Croissant and Michael Boliek for their work on this case.

Delarosa will be transferred to the Oregon Department of Corrections to serve his sentence.

HILLSBORO, Ore.- On June 14, 2019, a Washington County jury found Jonathan Alexander Tyler guilty of two counts of Second-Degree Rape, two counts of First-Degree Sex Abuse, two counts of First-Degree Online Sexual Corruption of a Child and three counts of Luring a Minor. Judge Janelle Wipper oversaw the four-day trial which was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Allison Brown. The case was investigated by Beaverton Police Detective Chad Opitz.

In September 2018, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Beaverton Police Department were alerted to a concerning ad on a social media platform. The ad involved two young girls offering prostitution services. Authorities were able to identify the girls as ages 13 and 15. They also identified the suspect and discovered he was working as a daycare provider in Salem. Police learned that Tyler had communicated with the 13-year-old via social media last April and that he drove from Salem to Beaverton twice to have sex with the minor.

Detective Opitz arranged for the 15-year-old to contact Tyler on social media. She told him she was 15 and he agreed to drive to Beaverton to have sex with her. On September 19, 2018, Tyler was arrested by undercover officers after he arrived at the predetermined location. He had condoms with him and claimed he was there to meet his friend. During his interview, he admitted to having sex with the 13-year-old on two occasions, but claimed he thought both girls were 18. He later admitted he knew they were underage.

Investigators are concerned there may be additional victims who have not been identified. Anyone with information should contact Beaverton Police.

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office would like to acknowledge the work of Detective Opitz on this case as well as the FBI. We would also like to commend the two victims for their assistance throughout the investigation and for their bravery in providing testimony at trial.

Tyler will be sentenced by Judge Wipper on July 16, 2019.

HILLSBORO, Ore.- On June 7, 2019, Jose Luis Berumen-Carlos was sentenced to 180 months in prison by Judge Ricardo Menchaca for his role in a drive-by shooting, plus an additional 13 months in prison for crimes committed during his trial.

On February 1, 2019, Berumen-Carlos was convicted on multiple charges including two counts of First-Degree Attempted Assault with a Firearm, two counts of Unlawful Use of a Weapon with a Firearm, two counts of Recklessly Endangering Another Person, Unlawful Use of a GPS Device, Unauthorized Use of a Vehicle, Felon in Possession of a Firearm and two counts of First-Degree Theft of a Firearm. Senior Deputy District Attorney John Gerhard prosecuted the case against Berumen-Carlos.

On May 31, 2018, Berumen-Carlos fired four shots from his car as he drove past a home in North Plains, Oregon. Berumen-Carlos’s estranged girlfriend was inside the home at the time. A witness spotted Berumen-Carlos scouting the location while looking at his phone prior to the shooting.

The victim told investigators she feared Berumen-Carlos had been following her. Police then found a GPS tracking device hidden under the hood of her car. They also found the tracking device’s app installed on Berumen-Carlos’ cell phone. He fled the scene of the shooting but was arrested a short time later.

At the time of trial, Berumen-Carlos’s family had posted his bail and he was released from custody pursuant to a release agreement. That agreement called for Berumen-Carlos to wear a GPS ankle monitor and a substance abuse ankle monitor (SCRAM bracelet). The defendant appeared for each day of the four-day trial. However, when he learned that the jury had reached its verdict, but before learning what the verdict was, the defendant fled the courthouse. He cut off his GPS monitor and stole the SCRAM bracelet. Judge Menchaca then issued a bench warrant for the defendant’s arrest.

While Berumen-Carlos was evading authorities after he fled the courthouse, he was arrested in March in Multnomah County and charged with several more unrelated crimes there. He received an additional 18 months in prison as a result of those convictions. Then, on June 7, 2019, Berumen-Carlos pleaded guilty to First-Degree Failure to Appear and First-Degree Theft in Washington County. Judge Menchaca sentenced the defendant to an additional 13 months in prison consecutive to the drive-by shooting case.

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office would like to acknowledge the work of Deputies Erik Merklin and Maribel Camas with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, Officer Ryan Ohlmann with the North Plains Police Department and Special Agent Mike Easter with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Berumen-Carlos has been transferred to the Oregon Department of Corrections to begin serving his sentences.

HILLSBORO, Ore.- On June 4, 2019, Derek Brandon Conley pleaded guilty to Second-Degree Disorderly Conduct and was sentenced to 28 days in jail and 18 months of bench probation by Judge Rebecca Guptill. Deputy District Attorney Bryce Bissinger prosecuted the case against Conley.

On September 17, 2018, Conley responded to an online ad offering money in exchange for the removal of two separate portions of a double wide mobile home from private property in Yamhill County. Conley agreed to remove the trailers in exchange for cash. He then drove the first trailer to Echo Shaw Elementary School in Cornelius where he illegally dumped it in the school’s parking lot. The mobile home was in extreme disrepair. It was rusty, full of trash and debris and listing dangerously to one side. It presented a safety risk to children and those using the facility.

Fortunately, a witness spotted Conley unhooking the home. The witness took several pictures as Conley drove away and called law enforcement. Based on this information, officers were able to track Conley down to Yamhill County where he was attempting to remove the other half of the home. Conley initially denied the allegations but eventually admitted to leaving the trailer in the school parking lot.

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office would like to acknowledge the work of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office serving the City of Cornelius.

In addition to his jail sentence, Conley must also pay more than $1,800 in fines and restitution to cover the costs of cleanup incurred by the City of Cornelius.
