Jackie E. Weeks – Repeat Sex Offender – Raped 3 women while under strict supervision

This is the kind of offender that we all have great concerns about, but he was being tightly supervised,” said Scott Taylor, director of the county’s Department of Community Justice.

Asked how Weeks could commit these new sex crimes while being tightly supervised, Taylor said,

“That’s the nature of some of the people we’re requested to supervise. Some of them continue their behavior.”

Convicted predatory sex offender Jackie E. Weeks confessed to police that he raped two women this week, one in Portland on Tuesday evening and another in Prineville on Thursday morning, saying he was frustrated with his probation officer and the many reporting and treatment requirements he faced.

The 47-year-old’s statements are detailed in a probable cause affidavit filed in Multnomah County Circuit Court on Friday.

Weeks has been under Multnomah County supervision since his release from prison in July 2007. He has been living in transitional housing at the Medford Building in Old Town — the same location the county had planned to place serial rapist Richard Troy Gillmore in January before his victim and prosecutors sued the state to keep him behind bars.

Weeks admitted to following a 22-year-old woman from Northwest 21st Avenue and Glisan Street to her home on Northwest Northrup Street about 5 p.m. Tuesday. He entered through an unlocked front door and climbed a flight of stairs to her bedroom, where he raped her, the affidavit says.

The woman told police she didn’t notice anyone following her. When she arrived home, she said, she went upstairs and sat on her bed with her computer to check her e-mail. About five minutes later, she heard someone walking up the stairs. She saw a strange man in red shorts, a white shirt, a baseball hat and sunglasses, who asked her, “Is Mike here?”

When she said no, he told her, “Let’s get to it!” and pushed her back on her bed. She tried to push him away, but he leaned his forearm into her neck, pinned her down and took off her clothes, she told police.

The woman noticed a large black tribal-looking tattoo on the man’s stomach — a key description that helped investigators quickly identify a suspect.

Detective Mary Wheat sent local sexual assault probation officers a description of the attacker. Multnomah County Probation Officer Christine Jensen soon contacted the detective, telling her she was supervising Weeks, a registered sex offender who fit the description.

When the detective showed the victim photos of potential suspects, she started to cry and immediately pointed to Weeks, the affidavit says.

Wednesday night, police tried to arrest Weeks at a Southeast Portland industrial warehouse where he worked. When police arrived, he fled. He later said he had spotted an officer outside his workplace and left through a partly opened garage. He said he rode the MAX to Gresham and then hitchhiked to Prineville. He made it to Prineville, where officers say he raped another woman in her home Thursday, stole a car and then led police on a long chase before crashing the vehicle near Corbett.

Weeks is being held in lieu of $1.15 million bail. He was arraigned in court Friday on charges of first-degree rape, first-degree sodomy, two counts of first-degree sexual abuse, and three counts of first-degree burglary.

Weeks was released from prison July 13, 2007, after being convicted of two counts of first-degree rape in February 1995. He was sentenced to two consecutive 78-month sentences. Since his release, he’s lived at the Medford Building, transitional housing run by nonprofit Central City Concern, and has been under county supervision.

“This is the kind of offender that we all have great concerns about, but he was being tightly supervised,” said Scott Taylor, director of the county’s Department of Community Justice. Asked how Weeks could commit these new sex crimes while being tightly supervised, Taylor said, “That’s the nature of some of the people we’re requested to supervise. Some of them continue their behavior.”

Kenneth Wolfe – Repeat Sex Offender – Grabbing kids off their bikes


A registered sex offender in an SUV grabbed a 7-year-old girl by the collar as she was riding her bike, according to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.

The suspect was pulling so hard on the victim’s shirt that the collar was choking her, according to the sheriff’s office. The girl managed to get away and hide in some bushes before running to a friend’s house.

Deputies arrested Kenneth Wolfe, 59, and charged him with attempted second degree kidnapping and harassment charges.

Wolfe is a registered sex offender in Oregon due to a prior conviction for third degree sexual abuse, according to the sheriff’s office. Third degree sexual abuse is a misdemeanor in Oregon.

The investigation began Monday evening when the 911 center received a call from a man reporting someone had attempted to abduct his 7-year-old step-daughter while she was riding her bicycle in the neighborhood.

Deputies responded and learned that the victim and a 10-year-old female friend were riding bicycles in the 900 block of Plateau Drive. A male subject in a green SUV dropped off a male subject at a residence in the 900 block of Plateau.

The girls told the sheriff that the driver of the SUV then drove up to the victim and grabbed her by the back of the shirt. The suspect was pulling so hard on the victim’s shirt that the collar was choking her, according to the sheriff’s office.

The victim resisted and was able to ride away and hide in some bushes. The victim then ran to a friend’s house and told the friend’s mother about the incident.

The victim and her friend were able to provide deputies with a detailed description of the vehicle and suspect. She was also able to point out the residence where the first male subject was dropped off by the suspect.

Deputies contacted the occupants of this residence in the 900 block of Plateau Drive. The male subject there told deputies that he had been dropped off by Wolfe.

Deputies contacted Wolfe at his residence on Joseph Street in Roseburg. There was a dark green Ford SUV in the driveway of Wolfe’s Residence.

Deputies interviewed Wolfe and then took him into custody.

Jonel Berlovan – Child Molester – Animal Raper

A North Ridgeville man has been indicted on charges accusing him of molesting a young boy and having sex with his animals.

Berlovan

During their investigation into the molestation allegations against Jonel Berlovan, North Ridgeville police learned that Berlovan was also sodomizing sheep and rottweilers he owned, county Prosecutor Dennis Will said.

The investigation was sparked after Children Services received a complaint that Berlovan, 56, had been exposing himself and touching the boy, who is about 6, between 2004 and October of last year.

Berlovan’s wife shared her suspicions about her husband’s relationship with their animals – which allegedly dated back to 1995 – with officers during the investigation, Will said.

The wife is seeking a separation from her husband and has obtained a restraining order against him that will be in effect through 2012, according to court records.

When confronted by officers, Berlovan admitted to the allegations against him, Will said.

Will said it was impossible to know how many animals Belovan may have had sexual relations with because many of the animals died from infection. Will said he did not know if the infections were caused by Berlovan’s sexual acts with the animals.

After the allegations surfaced, Berlovan apparently still owned one dog, but Will said he did not know if that animal had been a victim of Berlovan’s advances.

Berlovan is charged with four counts of gross sexual imposition, all felonies carrying a penalty of up to five years in prison. He also faces eight counts of cruelty to companion animals, misdemeanors that could send him to jail for up to six months.
