Haner

Fugitive LO cheerleader arrested in California

Authorities have tracked down and arrested former Lake Oswego High School cheerleader Julia Lynn Haner, who fled house arrest in June while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.

Haner, 19, was arrested Monday afternoon in San Francisco after police responded to reports of a disturbance involving a person with a firearm, according to San Francisco Police Department spokesman Gordon Shyy.

The suspect attempted to flee in a vehicle, Shyy said, but was detained at a traffic stop.

Haner was discovered in the vehicle with two other people. Officers quickly retrieved a firearm from Haner, and a subsequent investigation turned up evidence that Haner was involved in human sex trafficking, Shyy said.

Haner was booked on three charges: conspiracy, carrying a concealed firearm and human sex trafficking.

She is currently lodged in the San Francisco County Jail on the local charges; a federal hold has also been placed on Haner for the charges she faces in Portland.

Haner had been allowed to live at home while wearing an ankle monitoring device, but she removed the device and disappeared sometime during the weekend of June 21-22, officials said.

Haner was indicted by a federal grand jury in April on charges of sex trafficking of a minor. She is suspected of recruiting a 17-year-old former LOHS classmate to work as a prostitute and transporting her across state lines to work in Washington. The victim is not currently attending the high school.

Haner attended LOHS during the 2011-12 school year and took a single class from 2012-13, but did not graduate.

Concert to raise funds to aid area seniors

Three Rivers Village, a new organization that assists senior citizens in Lake Oswego, West Linn and Oregon City, will be one of the beneficiaries of a rock-concert fundraiser on Tuesday, Aug. 26.

The performance will be held at the Trail’s End Saloon, 1320 Main St. in Oregon City, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Performers will include long-time Portland favorite Duffy Bishop, the Chris Carlson Band and blues rockers HiFi Mojo with Marty Henninger.
