A Portland, Oregon, child molestation victim was ordered placed upon the sexual offenders registry after the 25-year-old woman conceived a child with her disabled teenage brother. The teen brother reportedly has an IQ of 54.
The child molestation victim turned sex offender was reportedly raped by her mother’s boyfriend from the age of eight to 11. The 25-year-old Portland woman has not been named in order to protect the identity of her teenage brother. The woman was not ordered to serve prison time for getting pregnant with the disabled teen’s baby after she admitted to mentally abusing the youth.
Oregon law enforcement investigators report that the 25-year-old child molestation victim and her disabled teen brother “had sex” 10 times when they lived together in 2013 and 2014. Court filings revealed that the teenager was younger than 18 at the time of the intercourse, but did not give a specific age of the young man.
The 25-year-old’s mother’s boyfriend was convicted of child abuse and is currently serving a 20-year prison term, according to court filings. Last week, the woman told Oregon’s Multnomah County Circuit Judge Kenneth Walker that she had lived through a difficult family experience which involved both verbal and physical abuse. The adult child molestation victim also maintains that she suffers from anxiety and depression.
When she was arrested in 2014, the 25-year-old woman was working at the Portland Habilitation Center part-time. The facility is a non-profit group which provides housing, employment, training, and educational assistance to adults with disabilities in Oregon.
The plea deal the child molestation victim signed in order to remain out of a prison cell reportedly states that she received three years’ probation, is banned from making any contact with her brother, has to register as a sexual offender, and refrain from making any contact with underage males.
The disabled teen brother is now living with the siblings’ mother. It remains unclear who will be raising the baby conceived in incest. The woman’s defense attorney, Drake Durham, refused to comment on the custody issue. When asked what counseling, if any, the 25-year-old woman received due to the years of child molestation, both the defense attorney and the prosecutor declined to comment.
The disabled teen brother, who fathered a child with his sister, did not attend the court proceedings. “I think this is an appropriate resolution to the case. It focuses on the treatment needs for the defendant,” Multnomah County Deputy District Attorney Ryan Luftkin said. The probable cause affidavit given to the court said that the 25-year-old child molestation has “some cognitive challenges” but did not elaborate further. The woman reportedly could not hold a job for very long and is currently unemployed.
