Troutdale teen indicted for sexual assault
A grand jury has indicted a Troutdale teenager alleging that in late February he sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl after giving her alcohol.
Shane Michale Maynard, 18, was arraigned Thursday, March 15, in Multnomah County Circuit Court on charges of third-degree rape, second-degree sexual abuse and furnishing alcohol to a minor.
Maynard's first trial date is set for April 30. He was released from the Multnomah County Detention Center on Friday on close street supervision, a pre-trial release program where sheriff's deputies will monitor him.
Maynard was arrested Tuesday, March 6. Troutdale police began an investigation after the girl told a school nurse about the incident.
According to court records, the girl told police that she met Maynard through mutual friends on Facebook and the two began sending text messages to each other. The girl allegedly told him she was a freshman in high school.
Around 12:30 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 25, the girl left her home and went to Maynard's residence, where they started drinking vodka. The girl told police she had four shots of vodka and felt dizzy and intoxicated. She went into a bedroom with Maynard, and they started kissing.
The girl told Maynard she did not want to have sex, but there 'came a point where sexual intercourse occurred,' according to court documents.
The girl also showed police a text message from Maynard, in which he offered to pay for a morning-after pill or an abortion 'so no one has to know,' according to court documents.
