HILLSBORO, Ore.- On June 4, 2019, Derek Brandon Conley pleaded guilty to Second-Degree Disorderly Conduct and was sentenced to 28 days in jail and 18 months of bench probation by Judge Rebecca Guptill. Deputy District Attorney Bryce Bissinger prosecuted the case against Conley.

On September 17, 2018, Conley responded to an online ad offering money in exchange for the removal of two separate portions of a double wide mobile home from private property in Yamhill County. Conley agreed to remove the trailers in exchange for cash. He then drove the first trailer to Echo Shaw Elementary School in Cornelius where he illegally dumped it in the school’s parking lot. The mobile home was in extreme disrepair. It was rusty, full of trash and debris and listing dangerously to one side. It presented a safety risk to children and those using the facility.

Fortunately, a witness spotted Conley unhooking the home. The witness took several pictures as Conley drove away and called law enforcement. Based on this information, officers were able to track Conley down to Yamhill County where he was attempting to remove the other half of the home. Conley initially denied the allegations but eventually admitted to leaving the trailer in the school parking lot.

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office would like to acknowledge the work of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office serving the City of Cornelius.

In addition to his jail sentence, Conley must also pay more than $1,800 in fines and restitution to cover the costs of cleanup incurred by the City of Cornelius.
