Former LO man faces additional release hearing

by: REVIEW PHOTO: VERN UYETAKE - Conrad Engweiler, 40, is a Lake Oswego resident and convicted murderer.The Oregon Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision has decided to hold an additional exit interview hearing for former Lake Oswego resident and convicted murderer Conrad Engweiler, 40.

After a nearly four-hour hearing on May 13 that included an interview with Engweiler and testimony from the victim’s family, the three-person parole board announced Friday afternoon it would delay its decision until at least Aug. 26, when it will convene again for an additional exit interview with Engweiler.

According to Brenda Carney, executive director of the state parole board, the three-member board who interviewed Engweiler ordered another psychological evaluation for him, and seeks additional information on “psychosexual risk factors.”

Engweiler was found guilty of the 1990 rape and murder of his classmate, Erin Reynolds, 16.

Although Engweiler’s initial sentence was a 30-year minimum, his status has been complicated by a series of legal decisions, including the state Supreme Court’s reversal in 2011 of a 1999 ruling that Engweiler should serve up to 40 years.

If released, Engweiler will remain on parole for life and will be required to register as a sex offender.

According to Carney, at least nine letters of support for Engweiler have been received and entered into the record.
