HILLSBORO, Ore.- On August 13, 2021, Judge Andrew Erwin found Hunter Lee James Andrews guilty of five counts of first-degree sexual abuse. On September 20, 2021, Judge Erwin sentenced the defendant to 150 months in prison under Measure 11 sentencing guidelines. Deputy District Attorney Jason Weiner prosecuted the case against the defendant. 

In May of 2020, the Oregon Department of Human Services (DHS) received a report of abuse involving the defendant and a minor known to him. DHS contacted the Tigard Police Department which began investigating the case. Officers went to the child’s home and spoke to her about the allegations. She confirmed the allegations and gave additional details on the abuse. The victim was also seen by a trained specialist at CARES Northwest where she again described how the defendant sexually abused her on multiple occasions. 

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office wishes to acknowledge the bravery of the victim in participating in the trial against the defendant. This office also thanks DHS, Tigard police and CARES Northwest for their work on this case.
