DA's Office Secures Two Guilty Verdicts in Separate Cases Involving Sting Operations (Photo) - 04/19/19

HILLSBORO, Ore.- This week, the Washington County District Attorney’s Office successfully convicted two defendants in cases involving separate undercover sting operations.

On April 17, 2019, a jury convicted David Andrade-Arroyo of one count of First-Degree Online Sex Corruption and two counts of Luring a Minor.

On May 3, 2018, Andrade-Arroyo was arrested as part of a child predator sting operation conducted by the Beaverton Police Department with assistance from the Portland Police Bureau and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Andrade-Arroyo was 19 when he began communication with whom he thought was a 15-year-old girl through a social media app. That girl was an undercover detective. Andrade-Arroyo request to meet with the purported child that night to have sex. He also sent a sexually explicit image. He arrived on the agreed-on location in Beaverton and was arrested by undercover detectives. He admitted he had come to the location because of the chat, but claimed he only came to talk and did not intend to have sex with the purported child. 

This case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Allison Brown. Judge Ricardo Menchaca oversaw the trial against Andrade-Arroyo. Sentencing is scheduled for June 21, 2019.

On April 18, 2019, a Washington County jury found Juan Gabriel Sosa guilty of Luring a Minor, Second-Degree Attempted Sex Abuse and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm. This case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Andrew Freeman in the courtroom of Judge Beth Roberts.

Sosa was 27 when he was arrested on November 9, 2018, as part of an undercover human trafficking sting conducted by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. As part of the sting, undercover officers created a profile on a social media app posing as a teenage girl. Sosa contacted the account and told officers he was fine with the girl’s stated age of 16. He proceeded to engage in sexually explicit conversations with officers, asked for naked photos and sent a shirtless picture of himself. Sosa was arrested at a public park where he believed he was meeting the girl for sex. He was found with a concealed and loaded handgun inside his waistband and had a condom in his pocket.   

Sentencing in this case is set for May 3, 2019.

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office would like to acknowledge the hard work of the law enforcement agencies noted above. We would also like to acknowledge the work of Detective Chad Opitz from the Beaverton Police Department and Detective Mark Povolny from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office on these cases.
