HILLSBORO, Ore.- On June 18, 2020, Marco Antonio Xiap-Jelkes Junior pleaded guilty to first-degree forcible rape, first-degree forcible sodomy, second-degree rape and second-degree sexual abuse. Judge Rebecca Guptill then sentenced the defendant to 200 months in prison. Deputy District Attorney Marie Atwood prosecuted the case against the defendant.

Hillsboro Police were contacted by the mother of one of three total victims to report her child and a friend were both raped by the defendant. The attack took place in Hillsboro, Oregon in April of 2018 but didn’t immediately come to light. The defendant was 19 years old at the time and the two victims were underage.

In 2019, investigators also learned of a third victim who reported she was also raped by the defendant. He met her on social media and convinced her to meet him at a public park in Hillsboro, Oregon where the attack took place.

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office acknowledges the work of investigators with the Hillsboro Police Department. This office also thanks CARES Northwest for their work on this case.

In addition to his prison sentence, Judge Guptill ordered the defendant to register as a sex offender and barred him from having any contact with his victims or their families upon his release.
