HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP) — The Washington County Juvenile Department says it will continue to supervise group outings for young offenders despite the arrest of a teen accused of raping a woman after an Oregon football game.
County spokeswoman Julie McCloud told KVAL-TV it’s important to provide opportunities for youth to gain social skills, and field trips are common in juvenile departments across the country.
Jaime Tinoco was one of 12 young people taken to the Ducks game on Sept. 13. He escaped supervision at some point and a woman reported being raped that evening. The-17-year-old is being tried as an adult. He pleaded not guilty.
Tinoco was living at home at the time of the incident. A judge sentenced him to supervised probation in July following convictions for burglary, harassment and meth possession.
