HILLSBORO, Ore.- On March 4, 2022, a Washington County jury found Gavin Lloyd Klusendorf guilty of two counts of first-degree unlawful sexual penetration and two counts of first-degree sexual abuse. Senior Deputy District Attorney Andy Pulver prosecuted the case against the defendant before Judge Andrew Erwin. 

While the abuse took place between 2016 and 2017, it was not reported until June of 2020 when the victim confided in a friend. That friend urged her to report the abuse to an adult which she did. That adult contacted Hillsboro police and an investigation was launched. The victim gave additional details on the abuse to investigators and experts at CARES Northwest. 

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office wishes to commend the victim in this case for having the courage to report this abuse. This office also thanks Hillsboro police, CARES Northwest, and the Oregon Department of Human Services for their work. 

A sentencing hearing is scheduled for April 20, 2022.
