JAIR LEYVA NORIEGA CONVICTED OF MANSLAUGHTER FOR ROLE AS DRUG DEALER IN DEADLY OVERDOSE

Image
Washington Co. District Attorney's Office HILLSBORO, Ore- On May 15, 2024, Washington County Circuit Court Judge Andrew Erwin found Jair Leyva Noriega, age 21, guilty of Manslaughter in the Second Degree and Unlawful Delivery of a Schedule II Controlled Substance to a Minor in a bench trial. He was sentenced to 75 months in prison which will run consecutively to a prior sentence of 13 months in prison on domestic violence-related charges, for a combined prison sentence of 88 total months. Senior Deputy District Attorney Andrew Freeman prosecuted this case.  This verdict is a rare occurrence in Oregon. Unlike some states and federal law, Oregon does not have a crime that specifically addresses drug dealers who cause overdose deaths. Sometimes the crime of criminally negligent homicide or manslaughter can be charged. However, those cases are rare and require specific evidence. To date, the Washington County DA’s Office is aware of only two other manslaughter convictions in Oregon of

Eugene Springfield Fire Eugene, OR.  Eugene Springfield Fire responded to swimmers in distress near the low head dam on the Willamette River in Glenwood  Saturday afternoon .  Crews were alerted to the water rescue call  at 3:19 PM and the first land based fire crews arrived 5 minutes later to guide the water rescue boats.  In all, 7 college age males were assisted following a near drowning incident involving the defunct dam and debris in it.  The individuals were floating the river in non-rated floatation devices without wearing life jackets.  Some of all of the swimmers were forced under the water due to currents and obstacles called strainers.  Most were washed down stream from the dam while one was able to escape the churning current by grabbing a branch to pull himself up concrete wall.  The low head dam is a dangerous obstacle in the waterway on a good day.  With cold water, changing flows and debris caught on the dam, it is much more dangerous.  We recommend recreating on the ri
