Former LO man sentenced for burglary, sex abuse

Chandler McLane Olson pleads no contest to charges from 2012 incident


A former Lake Oswego man will spend seven years in prison for walking into a Palisades Crest home nearly naked and fondling a sleeping teenage girl.

Chandler McLane Olson, 37, pleaded no contest to charges of first-degree burglary and first-degree sex abuse in Clackamas County Circuit Court on Nov. 14.Chandler McLane Olson

The charges stem from an incident reported at 3 a.m. Nov. 4, 2012, when a man wearing only a jacket entered a house, went into a bedroom and touched one of two girls who were sleeping there. One of the girls screamed when she awoke, and the man fled, police reported at the time.

Olson had reportedly moved to Idaho but still had family in Lake Oswego. He turned himself into police Nov. 10, 2012, and has been in Clackamas County Jail since then.

According to police, the lengthy time in custody stemmed from the suspect’s attempts to have charges reduced, but the district attorney’s office, police and victim’s family wanted to ensure he was charged with first-degree sex abuse, a Measure 11 offense.
