HILLSBORO, Ore.- On April 15, 2021, a Washington County jury found Jesus Gongora Dominguez, age 20, guilty of six counts of first-degree sodomy. Deputy District Attorney Chris Lewman prosecuted the case before Judge Oscar Garcia.

In December of 2019, the victim disclosed to a mandatory reporter that he was sexually abused by the defendant four years prior. Hillsboro police were notified and arranged an interview with the victim and his family.

The victim reported that the defendant had sexually abused him multiple times. He told investigators that the defendant would lure him into his bedroom with the promise of candy or video games and would then sexually abuse him. He ordered the victim not to tell anyone about the abuse.

Despite years of concealing the abuse, the victim found the courage to come forward and reveal the acts the defendant committed. 

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office wishes to commend the victim in this case for his bravery in reporting this abuse. This office also thanks the Hillsboro Police Department and CARES Northwest for their work on this difficult case.

A sentencing hearing is scheduled for July 7, 2021. The defendant will remain in custody until that time.
