HILLSBORO, Ore. (KOIN 6) — Washington County Juvenile Department officials remained tight-lipped Wednesday, one day after a 17-year-old was charged with rape during a supervised field trip.

Jaime Tinoco, who is being charged as an adult, “participated in a group outing which included a trip to Autzen Stadium in Eugene to attend the University of Oregon football game,” department director Lynne Schroeder said in an email to KOIN 6 News on Tuesday.

Tinoco was arrested just after 10 p.m. Saturday and charged with first-degree rape, first-degree kidnapping and fourth-degree assault.

In July, Tinoco was placed on probation in Washington County for first-degree burglary, possession of methamphetamine and harassment, Schroeder said.

The trip to Eugene was part of a program that helps youth in the system develop positive life skills.

On Wednesday, Schroeder declined an interview request from KOIN 6 News. Instead, she referred back to her email statement from Tuesday.

She did say the county is in the process of getting out more information on the program through county spokesperson Julie McCloud.

McCloud also declined a request for an interview from KOIN 6 News.
