Kaleb Dominic Hendricks Villarreal, 25, was sentenced by Judge Ladd Wiles to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of first-degree sodomy, a Measure 11 crime that carries with it a stiff mandatory sentence if the defendant is found guilty.

He will not be eligible for a reduction in sentence, conditional or supervised release, leave from custody or work release, Wiles also ordered.

In exchange for his two guilty pleas, six counts each of using a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct, first-degree sexual abuse and first-degree sodomy were dropped.

In addition to his sentence, Villarreal will emerge from prison at the age of 50 with the order that he undergo post-prison supervision for life and enter a sexual offender program.

Villarreal was arrested in January after detectives from the Beaverton Police Department were alerted in December of the possible abuse. The BPD officers then alerted detectives from the Newberg-Dundee Police Department after information surfaced that Villarreal possessed video recordings of his abuse of an underage victim.

"From September 23, 2016, to April 4, 2017, Kaleb Hendricks Villarreal made eight digital video recordings, of six different episodes, of himself orally sodomizing a child victim …," NDPD Officer Clay Sheldon wrote in a probable cause affidavit submitted Jan. 3. "The recordings were located on a phone which belongs to Hendricks-Villarreal and are date and time stamped and also geo location tagged at apartments (on College Street)."

"Hendricks-Villarreal's face is visible in several of the videos and I recognize him as the person in the videos from viewing other photos of Hendricks-Villarreal. The child victim has been identified from the videos and was less than 12 years old at the time of the recordings."

Villarreal was indicted in January by a grand jury on the sodomy, using a child in display of sexually explicit conduct and second-degree encouraging child sexual abuse.

Villarreal was originally represented by McMinnville attorney J. Mark Lawrence, then John Tyner and then Abraham Hanson. He was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Kate Lynch.

Arrest made in stabbing June 4

Newberg-Dundee Police Department officers responded to a report of an assault at 5:13 p.m. June 4 on East Third Street and Everest Road to find 37-year-old Joshua Mark Lovell had suffered a stab wound to the abdomen. Lovell was transported to Providence Newberg Medical Center.

The alleged assailants had fled by that point, according to a press release from the NDPD, but were contacted a short time later at the Sunrise Estates mobile home park at 300 S. Everest Road.

An investigation determined that the victim and the suspect were acquainted, the release said. Arrested was 19-year-old Nathan Lee Jones, of Newberg, on charges of second-degree assault and unlawful use of a weapon. He was transported to the Yamhill County jail to await arraignment.
