Charges include Measure 11 offenses

A 41-year-old Tigard man was convicted of sexually abusing teenage girls in Tigard and Beaverton after supplying them with methamphetamine.

Edmund Duane Enriquez was convicted Thursday, Aug. 15, in Washington County Circuit Court, after a judge ruled he had lured the girls to homes in Tigard and Beaverton, as well as a wooded area near Providence St. Vincent Medical Center to get them high and have sex with him.

Enriquez was found guilty on 18 counts: Seven counts of delivering meth to a minor, seven counts of second-degree sex abuse, one count each of third-degree sodomy and third-degree rape and two counts of using a child in display of sexually explicit conduct, a Measure 11 charge with a mandatory minimum sentence of nearly six years in prison.

Enriquez was arrested in June 2012, after parents contacted sheriff’s deputies and said their daughter told them she had done drugs and had sex with an older man named “Eddie.”

Detectives eventually arrested Enriquez and determined he had lured three underage girls to his home in the 10200 block of McDonald Street in Tigard to take drugs and have sex with him.

The girls were between the ages of 14 and 17, according to Washington County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. Bob Ray.

Along with his Tigard home, authorities said Enriquez also took the girls to his former residence in the 4100 block of Southwest Hocken Avenue in Cedar Hills, where he lived until January 2012, as well as a wooded area near Providence St. Vincent Medical Center.

“Basically, he had an area that he would take the girls to, like a little shack,” Ray told The Times after Enriquez’s arrest.

Enriquez’s sentencing is set for Oct. 15.
