Daniel Jay Peckron Convicted on Three Counts in Child Sexual Abuse Case (Photo) - 11/24/21

HILLSBORO, Ore.- On November 19, 2021, a Washington County jury found Daniel Jay Peckron, age 55, guilty of three counts of first-degree sexual abuse. Deputy District Attorney Rayney Meisel prosecuted the case before Judge Ramón Pagán. 

In January of 2021, the 10-year-old victim reported the defendant had been molesting her for a number of years. Tigard police and the Oregon Department of Human Services then launched an investigation. 

The victim was taken to CARES Northwest for an evaluation. There she gave additional details on the sexual abuse she suffered and described emotional abuse, physical discipline, and neglect she endured as well. The defendant denied the allegations.

“This child endured years of disparate abusive treatment at the hands of the defendant. We commend her for finding the strength to speak up and thank the supportive adults in her life who gave her the safe space to speak up in,” said DDA Meisel. 

This office would also like to acknowledge the work of the Tigard Police Department, the Oregon Department of Human Services and CARES Northwest for their work on this case. 

A sentencing hearing is scheduled for January 21, 2022. The defendant will remain in custody at the Washington County Jail until that time.
