Ronald Bruce Jordan Sentenced to 10 Years in Prison in Child Sex Abuse Case (Photo) - 10/03/19

HILLSBORO, Ore.- On October 2, 2019, Judge Danielle Hunsaker sentenced Ronald Bruce Jordan to ten years in prison (120 months). Mr. Jordan previously pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree sex abuse in a case prosecuted by Senior Deputy District Attorney Allison Brown.

Forest Grove Police Detective Darren Pomeroy began investigating Mr. Jordan in February of 2019 after the teenage victim made a disclosure of abuse. She reported that Mr. Jordan began sexually abusing her when she was a young child and that the abuse continued for many years in multiple jurisdictions including areas of Washington County. Mr. Jordan was known to the victim.

The victim eventually confronted Mr. Jordan. He admitted to treating her inappropriately and said he was ashamed and sorry for the way he acted. Gresham Police arrested Mr. Jordan in April of 2019. He admitted to inappropriate touching and told investigators that he allowed improprieties to take place.

The victim read an emotional victim impact statement at the sentencing hearing and Judge Hunsaker gave her encouraging words in her effort to move forward. Mr. Jordan also spoke and apologized for his actions.

In addition to the 10-year prison sentence, Mr. Jordan is required to register as a sex offender and is prohibited from having contact with the victim or any minors. Judge Hunsaker recommended he complete child sex offender treatment as part of his post-prison supervision conditions.

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office would like to acknowledge the investigative work of Detective Pomeroy, in addition to the support provided by CARES Northwest and the Oregon Department of Human Services.

Mr. Jordan has been transferred to the Oregon Department of Corrections to begin serving his sentence.
