COURTESY PHOTO - Benito Juarez-HernandezA Beaverton man was convicted Monday, June 22, of multiple sexual crimes against minors in Washington County.

Benito Juarez-Hernandez was prosecuted over allegations of sexual abuse that took place between 2010 and 2013. He was found guilty of two counts of using a child in display of sexually explicit conduct, nine counts of first-degree sexual abuse, four counts of first-degree sodomy and one count of first-degree unlawful sexual penetration — all felonies under Oregon law.

Prosecutors say two victims came forward to report abuse by Juarez-Hernandez while he was serving a 75-month prison sentence for sexually abusing another minor, charges of which he was convicted in 2014. A fourth victim later came forward as well.

All of Juarez-Hernandez's victims were children at the time of the abuse.

The abuse allegations were investigated by the Washington County Sheriff's Office.

Two other adults were also arrested last year in connection with the case. One of them, Cupertino Juarez-Hernandez — Benito Juarez-Hernandez's younger brother — was convicted in January and sentenced to 55 years in prison.

Benito Juarez-Hernandez is set to be sentenced Monday, June 29.

The judge assigned to the case is Washington County Circuit Judge Ted Sims.

Cupertino Juarez-Hernandez was sentenced by a different judge, Charles Bailey.
