HILLSBORO, Ore.- On January 26, 2022, David Duwayne Johnson, age 52, pleaded guilty to first-degree sexual abuse and two counts of public indecency. Washington County Circuit Court Judge Beth Roberts sentenced the defendant to 75 months in prison. Deputy District Attorney Sara Loebner prosecuted the case against Mr. Johnson. 

The defendant is a registered sex offender. In March of 2021, he entered the room of a young girl as she slept. He then sexually assaulted her. The victim reported the abuse to a friend who then alerted an adult. Cornelius police investigated the case. They confronted Mr. Johnson with these allegations. The defendant admitted he did engage in inappropriate contact with the victim.

The public indecency convictions stem from two separate incidents involving the defendant. On June 11, 2020, he exposed himself to an employee at a grocery store in Cornelius. On June 18, 2021, the defendant was caught masturbating at the Cornelius Public Library. 

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office wishes to acknowledge the work of the Cornelius Police Department. This office also commends the victim in this case for reporting the abuse. 

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