Sexually related criminal offenses carry a particularly negative stigma in our society, and even allegations of such crimes can be extremely damaging to a person’s reputation within the community. Oregon law deals with sex crimes extremely seriously, and it is important for a person facing such accusations to retain legal representation as soon as possible. Unfortunately, in the court of public opinion, a person facing allegations of sex crimes is often “guilty until proven innocent.” As a result, it is important to vigorously defend against these types of accusations early and vigorously. Portland criminal defense attorney Edward Kroll defends against all types of sex crimes and is dedicated to getting each client he represents the best possible outcome in their case.
A former Portland man on parole from a sex crime is now coming to understand how aggressively authorities will pursue offenders who abscond. According to a report published on KATU.com, Portland police have learned the location of a man who is wanted for parole violations stemming from a sex crime offense. Law enforcement officials in Apache Junction say that they located former Portland resident David Hendon, who is wanted by Portland authorities. According to the report, Hendon was released from prison earlier this year and failed to check in or register as a sex offender, as required by law.
