Former Corrections Officer Arrested

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office arrests a man on allegations of rape and posting a video recording of him having sex with a woman who didn’t know she was being recorded.

On October 15, 2018, detectives assigned to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office Violent Crimes Unit received information regarding an intimate video that had been posted on the internet without the consent of a person in it.

During the investigation, detectives learned that from July of 2014 to June of 2015, 28-year-old Jorge Serrano worked as an armed security guard assigned to patrol various residential and commercial areas in the Portland metro area.

In the spring of 2015 and while on duty, Serrano came across a tenant who lived in an apartment complex in the 19000 block of Northwest Evergreen Parkway in Hillsboro. Detectives learned he drove the tenant to a building nearby and engaged in sexual acts with her, which he filmed and later posted online without her knowledge. After his shift ended, Serrano met the woman again and then sexually assaulted her while she was unconscious.

Serrano was employed as a corrections deputy with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office from July of 2017 to November of 2018. Detectives learned he uploaded the video during that time frame.

On the morning of December 7, 2018, Washington County Sheriff’s Office detectives took  Serrano into custody while executing a warrant at his residence, located in the 1600 block of Alexandra Avenue in Woodburn.

Serrano was arrested on charges of first-degree rape and three counts of first degree-sodomy. He is being held at the Washington County Jail on $250,000 bail. Additional charges are possible as the investigation continues.

Detectives are working with Oregon State Police to investigate intimiate photos and videos of multiple women that Serrano uploaded to the internet without their knowledge. The investigation into unlawful dissemination of an intimate image is ongoing.

Investigators are working to identify those women and believe there are likely additional victims. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Washington County Sheriff’s Office at (503) 846-2700.

Detectives have been assisted in this investigation by the Oregon State Police, Jefferson County and Marion County Sheriff’s Offices, and Salem and Woodburn Police Departments.
