HILLSBORO, Ore.- On July 26, 2021, a Washington County jury found 44-year-old Airian Jovan Misuraca guilty of six counts of first-degree rape, nine counts of first-degree sodomy and four counts of first-degree sexual abuse. Senior Deputy District Attorney Allison Brown prosecuted the case against the defendant. 

Mr. Misuraca, who was already a convicted sex offender prior to this case, sexually abused the victim multiple times over a period of several years. In February of 2019, the victim made a disclosure of abuse to a family member who immediately alerted law enforcement. Tigard police began investigating the allegations. The victim was also taken to CARES Northwest where she gave additional details on the abuse.

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office wishes to acknowledge the bravery of the victim in reporting these crimes and for participating in the defendant’s trial. This office also thanks Tigard police, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, CARES Northwest, the Oregon Department of Human Services and the Oregon State Police Forensic Lab for their work on this case. 

A sentencing hearing is scheduled for September 8, 2021. The defendant will remain in custody until that time.
