Beaverton man, already in prison, convicted of 17 more sexual abuse charges

A Beaverton man already doing time for child sexual abuse was convicted Monday of 17 additional sexual abuse charges.

Benito Juarez-Hernandez, 40, was convicted in 2014 and sent to prison for abusing a minor. While he was in prison, three more victims came forward.

Juarez-Hernandez was found guilty Monday of nine counts of first-degree sexual abuse, two counts of using a child in display of sexually explicit conduct, four counts of first-degree sodomy and one count of first-degree unlawful sexual penetration.

Juarez-Hernandez, his brother and his brother’s ex-wife were accused of abusing several children in Beaverton and Aloha during a 15-year-period. They were all indicted in April 2019.

The brother, Cupertino Juarez-Hernandez, 34, was sentenced earlier this year to 55 years in prison on multiple charges of child abuse and sodomy. The brother’s ex-wife, Diana Rodriguez, 36, is set to go on trial in October.
