HILLSBORO, Ore.- On July 27, 2023, a Washington County jury found David Michael Smith, age 36, guilty of Unlawful Sexual Penetration in the First Degree and two counts of Sexual Abuse in the First Degree. Deputy District Attorney Chris Lewman prosecuted the defendant before Judge Oscar Garcia.

In May of 2022, the child victim reported that the defendant, who was known to her, sexually abused her. The Oregon Department of Human Services (DHS) alerted the Washington County Sheriff's Office of the allegations. Investigators met with the victim’s family. The child also met with medical experts at CARES Northwest where she provided additional details of the abuse.

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office commends the victim for her bravery throughout this process. We also acknowledge the work of DHS, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, and CARES Northwest.

A sentencing hearing is scheduled for August 15, 2023.
