Former Daycare Worker Found Guilty in Sexual Abuse Case

Washington Co. District Attorney's Office

HILLSBORO, Ore.- On June 14, 2019, a Washington County jury found Jonathan Alexander Tyler guilty of two counts of Second-Degree Rape, two counts of First-Degree Sex Abuse, two counts of First-Degree Online Sexual Corruption of a Child and three counts of Luring a Minor. Judge Janelle Wipper oversaw the four-day trial which was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Allison Brown. The case was investigated by Beaverton Police Detective Chad Opitz.

In September 2018, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Beaverton Police Department were alerted to a concerning ad on a social media platform. The ad involved two young girls offering prostitution services. Authorities were able to identify the girls as ages 13 and 15. They also identified the suspect and discovered he was working as a daycare provider in Salem. Police learned that Tyler had communicated with the 13-year-old via social media last April and that he drove from Salem to Beaverton twice to have sex with the minor.

Detective Opitz arranged for the 15-year-old to contact Tyler on social media. She told him she was 15 and he agreed to drive to Beaverton to have sex with her. On September 19, 2018, Tyler was arrested by undercover officers after he arrived at the predetermined location. He had condoms with him and claimed he was there to meet his friend. During his interview, he admitted to having sex with the 13-year-old on two occasions, but claimed he thought both girls were 18. He later admitted he knew they were underage.

Investigators are concerned there may be additional victims who have not been identified. Anyone with information should contact Beaverton Police.

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office would like to acknowledge the work of Detective Opitz on this case as well as the FBI. We would also like to commend the two victims for their assistance throughout the investigation and for their bravery in providing testimony at trial.

Tyler will be sentenced by Judge Wipper on July 16, 2019.
