News Release
UPDATE: Daniel Warren Sentenced to 36 Months in Prison - 02/21/24

UPDATE:

Today, Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge Christopher Marshall sentenced Daniel Thomas Warren, 40, to 36 months in prison for one count of Assault in the Third Degree, to which Warren pled guilty on February 9. 

Judge Marshall set over sentencing on one count of Bias Crime in the First Degree – to which Warren pled no contest on February 9 – for 30 months. Before the expiration of 30 months, Warren is required to complete a number of programs and anti-bias education assignments, including engaging in three in-person community events or trainings provided by Race Talks PDX, completing implicit bias training, and completing 48 hours of community service work at the Union Gospel Mission.

A hearing will be scheduled after 30 months to evaluate whether the requirements, as ordered by Judge Marshall, have been met. If Warren meets the requirements, the bias crime charge will be dismissed. If Warren does not fulfill these requirements, he will face a presumptive sentence of 25-30 months in prison.

DA Mike Schmidt Announces Grand Jury Indictment of Daniel Warren on Assault & Bias Crime Charges

Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt today announced that a grand jury indicted Daniel Thomas Warren, 40, on two charges relating to the recent assault of the owner of LoRell’s Chicken Shack in the Creston-Kenilworth neighborhood:

  1. Assault in the Second Degree
  2. Bias Crime in the First Degree

On June 15, Portland Police officers were dispatched to the area of SE 52nd Avenue and SE Foster on reports of an assault, but both parties had left the scene. Officers were able to obtain witness statements, video footage, and the location of the victim. A detective interviewed the victim, who explained that Warren hit the victim from behind, causing the victim to fall forward, at which time Warren continued punching him while stating racial slurs. 

Portland Police released an image of Warren in an attempt to locate and arrest him. On July 2, two East Precinct officers were on a call assisting Portland Fire & Rescue with traffic control in the 12300 block of Southeast Division Street when they spotted Warren walking. They stopped and arrested him, and he was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center. 

Upon review of the evidence provided by law enforcement, prosecutors presented the case to the Grand Jury, which returned a true bill of indictment on July 10.

Due to the violent nature of these crimes and the risk that Warren poses to public safety, prosecutors filed a motion seeking preventive detention (a means of denying any form of release during pendency of the case). Warren waived the preventative detention hearing at this time and remains in custody.  

Deputy District Attorney Kristen Kyle-Castelli is the prosecutor assigned to this case. The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office thanks the Portland Police Bureau for their assistance in this case.

A charging instrument is only an accusation of a crime. Warren is innocent unless and until proven guilty.
