WASHINGTON COUNTY, OR (KPTV) – A man police say sexually abused a young boy was sentenced to 20 years in prison Monday after pleading guilty to first-degree sex abuse charges.

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office says Victor Roberto Saravia pleaded guilty to four counts of first-degree sex abuse Friday. King City police first began investigating Saravia in February last year after the victim made a disclosure of abuse to his family.

One of the boy’s family members called police to report the abuse, and the boy was taken to CARES Northwest, where the attorney’s office says he told investigators about two instances of sexual abuse involving Saravia.

The boy told authorities the abuse began in 2017 and continued into 2018.

The attorney’s office says Saravia was known to the boy’s family.

King City police in conjunction with CARES Northwest and the Oregon Department of Humans Services say they found the allegations to be credible, and Saravia was arrested a short time after the boy disclosed the abuse.

The attorney’s office says Saravia will be transferred to the Oregon Department of Corrections to begin serving his sentence.

Investigators say there could be additional victims who haven’t come forward. Anyone with information on additional crimes by Saravia is urged to contact law enforcement.

Again,. They hand down a twenty year bit to this thing, knowing full well that the victim will be dealing with the matter for rest of his life and,. And let's be realistic, the freak of nature who committed this crime probably will reofend once he gets out in just a few years, because as we all know, there's nothing even close to truth in sentencing in Oregon. How much of this set garbage every day, where child molesters get nothing which even resembles the damage the crime carries with it, a car theif dont even face a charge when they are caught because they claim they didn't know the vehicle was stolen, yet can't give any info about where/how they got it. This is what our elected officials are doing to "Represent" our interests. How much are we going to take? Our DAs office. Is an elected position as well. The judge in the current case is elected also. It's time, past time really, to make the donuts and finally begin to hold these sorry excuses for "officials" accountable for what they do and don't do when we permit them the opportunity to work for us.

I'd like to knock that smirk off his smug face, but not to worry. The inmates will no doubt do it for me.
