HILLSBORO, Ore.- On November 21, 2019, a Washington County jury found Brandon Wesley Eugene Treat guilty of fourth-degree assault. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail by Judge Eric Butterfield. The case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Sara Loebner.

On June 6, 2019, Washington County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to an apartment complex in Aloha, Oregon on a report of a domestic disturbance. When they arrived, they spoke to the female victim who reported she was involved in a physical altercation with Mr. Treat.

The victim told deputies that she and the defendant were in a verbal argument and that she locked herself in a bathroom. Mr. Treat then smashed through the door and entered the bathroom. He then tackled her into the bathtub and remained on top of her while he grabbed her neck and throat with his hands and pressed his elbow into her chest. When deputies arrived, they noted several injuries to the victim’s head, neck and arms.

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office would like to acknowledge the Washington County Sheriff’s Office as well as the Family Justice Center of Washington County for their work on this case and assistance given to the victim.

In May of 2019, this office formed the Domestic Violence Unit. A team of six prosecutors are now working exclusively on cases involving domestic violence. This new unit has helped this office increase the amount of domestic violence-related cases filed, leading to more prosecutions and victims protected.

In addition to his jail sentence, Mr. Treat will also be subject to two years of supervised probation upon his release.
