HILLSBORO, Ore.- On September 2, 2022, a Washington County jury found Miguel Zambrano, age 39, guilty of first-degree sodomy, three counts of first-degree sexual abuse, and attempted using a child in display of sexually explicit conduct. Senior Deputy District Attorney Andy Pulver prosecuted the case before Judge Brandon Thompson. 

In October 2020, the victim wrote about the sexual abuse committed against her by the defendant in a journal and then showed a friend the various journal entries. Her friend convinced the victim to tell her mother. The victim’s mother notified police of these allegations. The victim was also seen by experts at CARES Northwest where she provided additional details on Mr. Zambrano’s actions. 

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office commends the victim in this case for the bravery shown throughout this process. This office also thanks the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and CARES Northwest for their work.

A sentencing hearing is scheduled for November 4, 2022, at 1:30 p.m.
