Judge: Activist violated probation for contact with minors

August 1, 2018

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A judge has found that a Portland activist violated his probation for sex crimes after he was seen with a 15-year-old boy.

Washington County Circuit Judge Janelle Wipper made the finding in the case of Micah Rhodes Tuesday after a hearing in which witnesses said Rhodes was with the boy during a protest outside an ICE facility in Portland.

Rhodes was ordered to stay away from anyone under 18 after he was convicted of sexual abuse for having illicit sexual contact with a 17-year-old girl in Washington County and a 17-year-old boy in Multnomah County in 2014 and 2015.

Judges decided not to sentence Rhodes to prison and instead ordered five years of probation.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports Wipper will decide on Rhodes’ penalty on Wednesday.
