HILLSBORO, Ore.- On February 9, 2022, Conner Jordan Charriere pleaded guilty to attempted first-degree kidnapping with a firearm, attempted first-degree burglary, and stalking. He was sentenced to 80 months in prison by Washington County Circuit Court Judge Oscar Garcia. Senior Deputy District Attorney Gina Skinner prosecuted the case against the defendant. 

In May of 2021, law enforcement received a tip that the defendant was planning to kidnap his estranged ex-girlfriend and transport her to North Carolina. The tipster reported that the defendant shared his plan with him. He said the defendant told him he purchased duct tape, zip ties, a handgun, and a device designed to decode digital padlocks. 

During that same period, the victim called police to report that she discovered the defendant attempted to break into her home after she reviewed surveillance camera footage. Deputies with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office responded. The victim told deputies that the defendant had been stalking her and possibly tracking her movements ever since they broke up the previous year. 

Deputies arrested the defendant and executed a search warrant on his home. Officers found packing to a GPS tracking device, a duffel bag containing a handgun and ammunition, duct tape, zip ties, and a lock decoder. They also found a list titled “The Plan” which detailed the steps needed to kidnap the victim and take her to North Carolina. Detectives later located a tracking device affixed to the car of the victim’s new boyfriend. 

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office wishes to acknowledge the tipster for reporting the defendant’s actions. This office also thanks the victim in this case for her cooperation and participation, as well as the Washington County Sheriff’s Office for its work. 

In addition to his prison sentence, the defendant was also ordered to undergo three years of post-prison supervision upon his release, ordered to have no contact with the victim, and ordered to participate in mental health treatment. Mr. Charriere will be transferred to the Oregon Department of Corrections to begin serving his sentence.
