HILLSBORO, Ore.- On May 18, 2020, a Washington County jury found Manuel Alfonzo De Leon Say guilty of two counts of first-degree unlawful sexual penetration and four counts of first-degree sexual abuse. On May 26, 2020, Judge Janelle Wipper sentneced the defendant to 25 years in prison. He was also ordered to register as a sex offender. Deputy District Attorney Chris Lewman prosecuted the case.

In August of 2018, a witness observed the defendant sexually abusing the young victim at a business in Hillsboro, Oregon. The witness immediately removed the child from the area and reported the incident to Hillsboro Police.

Detectives began to investigate, and the child was interviewed by medical experts at CARES Northwest. The victim described inappropriate touching and conduct by the defendant at both the business and a residence.

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office acknowledges the investigative work of Hillsboro Police Detective Megan Townsend on this case. This office also thanks CARES Northwest for their assistance.
