Two Sex Abuse Suspects Are Illegal Immigrants

OREGON CITY, Ore. - Two men indicted in the rape and sexual abuse of two Oregon City girls have admitted they entered the U.S. from Mexico illegally, police say.

A Clackamas County grand jury indicted two men this week in connection with two Oregon City girls, ages 14 and 15.

Alejandro Hernandez-Flores, 19, of Milwaukie and Mario Alberto Flores-Estrada, 20, of the Los Angeles area are accused of providing Tequila to the girls and having sex with them.

Hernandez-Flores was charged with forcible rape, sodomy, sexual abuse and unlawful sexual penetration. Flores-Estrada was charged with rape, sexual abuse and furnishing alcohol to minors.

Neither man appears to have a criminal history in Oregon, but Hernandez-Flores has some past traffic-related violations, including driving with a suspended license and driving without a license plate.

The men told police they are cousins.

A trial on the Clackamas County charges is scheduled for Oct. 5. At the conclusion of that case and resulting penalties, the men will be turned over to federal authorities for possible deportation.

Hernandez-Flores met the girls a few years ago at Clackamas Town Center, officials say.

An Oregon City officer found them about 2 a.m. Aug. 7 at Gardiner Middle School. The girls, also cousins, allegedly left home without permission and went there with the suspects.
