HILLSBORO, Ore- On January 26, 2024, Glen Sagastume-Garcia pleaded guilty to one count of Sexual Abuse in the First Degree. Washington County Circuit Court Judge Erik Buchér then sentenced the defendant to 75 months in prison. Senior Deputy District Attorney Allison Brown prosecuted the case against the defendant. 

The victim and defendant were acquaintances. On February 10, 2023, they met for dinner and then went to a motel in Beaverton, Oregon. They became intimate in the room, which was initially consensual. However, this changed when the defendant wanted to engage in additional sex acts. The victim demanded the defendant stop his actions, but he refused and used force to subdue her. She attempted to call 9-1-1, but the defendant took her phone and hung it up. The victim then escaped to the motel lobby where police were notified.

The victim was taken to the hospital. Medical providers noted bruising to her arms and discovered DNA evidence consistent with the victim’s account of the attack. 

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office wishes to acknowledge the work of the Beaverton Police Department and the Oregon State Police Forensic Laboratory on this case. 

The defendant will be transferred to the Oregon Department of Corrections to begin serving his sentence. This prison sentence will be followed by a term of post-prison supervision with recommendations for treatment.  The defendant is also required to register as a sex offender.
