News Release
Manuel Alfonzo De Leon Say Convicted on Multiple Counts in Child Sex Abuse Case (Photo) - 05/20/20

HILLSBORO, Ore.- On May 18, 2020, a Washington County jury found Manuel Alfonzo De Leon Say guilty of two counts of first-degree unlawful sexual penetration and four counts of first-degree sexual abuse. Deputy District Attorney Chris Lewman prosecuted the defendant in Judge Janelle Wipper’s courtroom.

In August of 2018, a witness observed the defendant sexually abusing the young victim at a business in Hillsboro, Oregon. The witness immediately removed the child from the area and reported the incident to Hillsboro Police.

Detectives began to investigate, and the child was interviewed by medical experts at CARES Northwest. The victim described inappropriate touching and conduct by the defendant at both the business and a residence.

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office acknowledges the investigative work of Hillsboro Police Detective Megan Townsend on this case. This office also thanks CARES Northwest for their assistance.

A sentencing hearing for the defendant is scheduled for May 26, 2020. The defendant will remain in custody until that time.
