News Release
Video Press Release: Israel Marcel Moore Sentenced to 25 Years in Prison in Child Sex Abuse Case (Photo) - 04/19/19

HILLSBORO, Ore.- On April 19, 2019, Washington County Judge Danielle Hunsaker sentenced Israel Marcel Moore to 25 years in prison pursuant to ORS 137.700, also known as Jessica’s Law. On April 5, 2019, Moore was convicted by a jury of one count of First-Degree Sexual Penetration and seven counts of First-Degree Sex Abuse. The case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Allison Brown.

The Beaverton Police Department began investigating Moore in September of 2017 after a young girl’s family made a report of possible abuse by Moore. The girl showed incredible courage in coming forward and in disclosing the details of the abuse to experts at CARES Northwest. She described three separate incidents of sexual abuse by Moore over the course of 2017.

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office would like to acknowledge the investigative work of Beaverton Police Detective Doug Jones as well as the staff at CARES Northwest for their efforts on this case. We would also like to acknowledge the courage shown by the victim in testifying before her abuser in court. That testimony was vital in securing a guilty verdict against Moore.

In addition to his prison sentence, Moore must also register as a sex offender. He was also ordered to undergoing lifetime post-prison supervision once he is released. Moore has been transferred to the Oregon Department of Corrections to begin serving his sentence.
