DA Mike Schmidt announces arraignment of Shane Cuddihy, 43, for Cafe Yumm robbery 

PORTLAND, Oregon – Today, Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt announced that Shane Rory Cuddihy, 43, was arraigned for Robbery in the Second Degree and two counts of Menacing. 

The charges stem from an incident on Monday, December 5. Cuddihy allegedly entered Cafe Yumm in the area of Northeast 7th Avenue in the Lloyd District and approached an employee stationed at the counter. He allegedly waved a plastic bag in the employee’s face then brandished what appeared to be a gun and pointed it at the employee. He allegedly instructed them to give him “the money in the drawer” and threw the plastic bag at them. The employee complied and put approximately $190 in ones, fives, and a roll of quarters from the register. 

A second employee approached and Cuddihy allegedly pointed the gun at them. He told them to get back and used profanities. The first employee handed Cuddihy the bag that contained the money and he fled the scene. 

Portland police responded and collected a detailed description of Cuddihy from the employees. Officers also collected a piece of paper at the scene with the suspect's surname written on it. They subsequently received information from Trimet that an individual that matched Cuddihy's description was in the area of Southwest 5th Avenue and Southwest Columbia Street. Officers arrived at his location and conducted a search of Cuddihy.

The Cafe Yumm employee that had been stationed at the counter at the time of the incident positively identified Cuddihy. Officers then effectuated an arrest and conducted a further search in which they found a glock-style BB gun. 

The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office has filed charges, including an offense for which Oregon law permits pretrial detention, and is requesting that Cuddihy be returned to custody and held without bail. 

Recent data shows that The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office prosecutes 72% of robberies referred by police. Property crime prosecution rates have been largely consistent since 2019, with a downtick in some areas at the start of the pandemic followed by a quick recovery to pre-pandemic rates by the end of 2020. 

A charging document is only an accusation of a crime. Cuddihy is innocent unless and until proven guilty.

DA Mike Schmidt releases weekly cases impacted by public defense crisis 

PORTLAND, Oregon – Today, Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt released a list of cases impacted by the public defense crisis. The data set includes the running total of cases dismissed by judges, cases set over to a future date due to a lack of defense counsel, and cases dismissed after being set over, as well as the case number for each. 

Last week, DA Mike Schmidt called the public defense crisis, defined by a lack of public defenders to provide counsel to defendants, an urgent threat to public safety. Individuals suspected of a crime have the constitutional right to defense counsel. Victims have a right to justice. Absent counsel, criminal prosecutions cannot lawfully move forward and issued cases are routinely dismissed over prosecutor’s objections.

DA Schmidt also declared that his office would publish cases impacted by the crisis each week to advance the public’s understanding of the scope of the crisis. The initial data set released, totaling 285 felony and misdemeanor cases dismissed, ranged from February 24, 2022, through October 31, 2022. Here is a breakdown of the types of felonies getting dismissed.

Below is a list of dismissed felony cases during the month of November, with an updated running total of 297 cases. 

  1. 22-CR-52643
  2. 22-CR-27149
  3. 22-CR-31053
  4. 21-CR-58697

  17. 21-CR-50567 

Subsequent data sets will be released Friday of each week and include cases impacted by the crisis from the five previous business days. 

In addition to cases being dismissed by judges, a high volume of cases filed with the court are set over to a future date due to a lack of a public defender, further delaying justice. Just this week, 30 hearings were set over:

  1. 21-CR-32753

DA Mike Schmidt announces two brothers arraigned for Murder in the Second Degree, other charges 
 

PORTLAND, Oregon – Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt announced that on Wednesday, November 30, Keyshawn Pervish, 21, was arraigned on four charges including Murder in the Second Degree, Robbery in the First Degree, Unauthorized Use of a Vehicle, Possession of a stolen vehicle. K. Pervish’s brother, Omarian Pervish, 18, was arraigned on the same charges with the addition of Unlawful Use of a Weapon on November 23. 

In May of 2021, K. Pervish, O. Pervish, and associates were allegedly in possession of a stolen Audi sedan and driving in the area of Northeast 143rd Avenue and Northeast Milton Street. The victim, 17 at the time, was driving the vehicle. O. Pervish allegedly shot the victim. K. Pervish then allegedly struck him with the Audi after possessing the driver’s seat. The Audi also struck another vehicle in the area where the victim was found, which caused small parts including the emblem of the Audi to dislodge, which led investigators to identify the make of the vehicle. The brothers then fled the scene in the Audi. The victim passed away in the middle of the road and was found by Portland police officers in response to a 9-11 call early the following morning. 

A charging document is only an accusation of a crime. K. Pervish and O. Pervish are innocent unless and until proven guilty.

DA Mike Schmidt announces 60-month prison sentence for Andrew Belsher, 25, for repeat car theft, other charges 

PORTLAND, Oregon – Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt announced that on Tuesday, November 29, Andrew Belsher, 25, was sentenced to 60-months in prison by a Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge. 

He pled guilty to seven charges including Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Failure to Perform the Duties of a Driver Person Injured, two counts of Recklessly Endangering Another Person, and three counts of Unlawful Use of a Vehicle and one count of Possession of a Stolen Vehicle. 

The charges stem from multiple incidents between 2020 and 2022. 

In 2020, Portland police officers found a firearm and hundreds of rounds of ammunition in the trunk of a vehicle Belsher was driving. In a separate incident in 2021, Belsher crashed a vehicle and fled the scene, leaving behind an injured passenger. Later that year, Portland police officers found Belsher with a stolen vehicle. The officer addressed a passenger in the stolen vehicle, at which time Belsher instructed the passenger not to speak with the police, stating “Don't say anything and it'll just get no-complainted.” He accrued a total of three charges associated with car theft in 2021, and two more in 2022. 

“Belsher is emblematic of the type of offender that our community will absolutely not tolerate. His crimes affected his victim’s ability to get work, take their children to school, and feel safe. He thought he would get away with it. Let today’s outcome be a message to those who might make the same mistake.” Deputy District Attorney Victor Mercado Negro stated.

Recent data shows that The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office prosecutes 77% of motor vehicle theft. 

The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office thanks the Portland Police Bureau for their work on this case.

DA Schmidt announces guilty plea for 'anarchist' for riot, to pay nearly $50,000 in restitution - 11/23/22

DA Schmidt announces guilty plea for ‘anarchist’ for riot, to pay nearly $50,000 in restitution

PORTLAND, Oregon – Today, Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt announced that Darrell Anthony Kimberlin, 33, pled guilty to Riot and Criminal Mischief in the Second Degree. A Multnomah Circuit Court Judge sentenced Kimberlin to 18 months probation and $49,755.74 in restitution to the organizations and businesses that Kimberlin damaged. 

The charges stem from two incidents. In January 2020, Kimberlin vandalized the Democratic Party of Oregon headquarters in Southeast Portland by breaking windows and tagging the building with spray paint. In February 2021 Kimberlin vandalized a Chipotle, an Umpqua Bank, and property belonging to a security company. The restitution owed to each is as follows: 

Business/OrganizationRestitution owed ($49,755.74 total)
The Democratic Party of Oregon$11,842.14
Umpqua Bank$23,751
Chipotle$7,282 
Arcadia Security $6,880.60 

“Kimberlin's extremist political views fueled him to commit crimes. Those crimes landed him with a bill to pay back the very institutions his ideology decries. There is a bright line between freedom of speech and criminal intent. Kimberlin’s actions were on the wrong side of that line, and now he’ll face the consequences. Justice was served today,” Stated office spokesperson, Elisabeth Shepard.

The Multnomah County District Attorney’s office issued nearly 200 protest-related cases between 2020 and 2022 for criminal prosecution. Each case is in various stages of the prosecutorial process, including pending trial, plea agreement, sentenced to prison or probation, or in warrant status. Visit MCDA’s press release page for both real-time information on protest cases and other cases of public interest and as an archive of past cases.

DA Mike Schmidt announces 50-month sentence for Leroy Parsons, 55, for repeat car theft 

PORTLAND, Oregon – Today, Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt announced that Leroy Alfred Parsons plead guilty to three counts of Unauthorized Use of a Vehicle, Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Theft in the First Degree. A Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge sentenced Parsons to 50 months in prison. 

Parsons was found in unlawful possession of six cars between 2021 and 2022. In one incident he had an unlawful amount of meth on his person. In another, he had a window breaker tool on his person. The vehicles he was in unlawful possession of ranged from newer cars such as a 2017 Subaru and a 2022 Hyundai as well as older vehicles such as a 2000 Dodge. Many of the vehicles sustained damages such as broken windows, punched-out ignitions, and discarded license plates. In each incident, law enforcement retrieved the vehicles within days or weeks of being reported stolen. 

“Cases like these are incredibly frustrating for the victims, our community, and the criminal justice system in a moment of system-wide strain and they make us less safe. Where Mr. Parsons is concerned, justice has been served. I am grateful for the hard work by Portland police officers to expeditiously retrieve these vehicles and gather the evidence needed for today’s outcome,” Deputy District Attorney Victor Mercardo stated. 

The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office thanks the Portland Police Bureau for their work on this case.

DA Mike Schmidt calls lack of public defenders an 'urgent threat to public safety'  - 11/21/22

DA Mike Schmidt calls lack of public defenders an ‘urgent threat to public safety’  

PORTLAND, Oregon – Today, Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt made a statement calling the public defense crisis, defined by a lack of public defenders to provide counsel to defendants, an urgent threat to public safety. He also declared that moving forward cases dismissed by the court due to a lack of defense counsel will be published every week by his office. Individuals suspected of a crime have the constitutional right to defense counsel. Victims have a right to justice. Absent counsel, criminal prosecutions cannot lawfully move forward and issued cases are routinely dismissed over prosecutor’s objections.

Statement from DA Schmidt:

“In February of this year, a Multnomah County Circuit Court judge dismissed the first of what is now nearing 300 cases due to a lack of defense counsel over my objection on the basis of victims' rights. Every week since, case hearings have been set over in the hopes that a public defender may be available at a future date, dismissed outright, or dismissed after being set over, sometimes even past the statute of limitations for a given offense. The courts are put in the position of releasing defendants without prosecutors having so much as an opportunity to request bail or release conditions. And it’s not getting any better. Just last week, a suspect that allegedly ran a car into a school bus of children, which subsequently had to be evacuated due to a leak caused by the incident, was released within 24 hours of his arrest due to lack of a defense counsel.”

“For nearly every defendant without counsel, there are one or more victim's awaiting justice. Months into this crisis, many are still waiting for their day in court while others have seen their cases dismissed altogether. This sends a message to crime victims in our community that justice is unavailable, and their harm will go unaddressed. It also sends a message to individuals who have committed a crime that there is no accountability while burning through scarce police and prosecutor resources. Every day that this crisis persists presents an urgent and continuing threat to public safety.”

“Prosecutors in my office have and will continue to issue cases for prosecution and reissue cases that have been dismissed as soon as we are able. We refuse to turn our backs on victims simply because one pillar of our justice system is crumbling. Moreover, from this day forward, my office will publish every case dismissed or set over as a result of this crisis weekly until it is resolved. The public must be empowered with this information to understand the scope of this crisis.” 

DA Schmidt published an Op-Ed weeks after the crisis began and has been vocal about its impact to crime victims since. He is also a member of the three-branch workgroup which has been tasked with crafting the legislative and budgetary response to this urgent issue. He instructed data analysts in his office to track the number of hearings impacted and cases dismissed since the crisis began to measure its impact on case flow and public safety. This data is included below. 

To date, a total of 285 cases including misdemeanors and felonies have been dismissed by the courts due to a lack of defense counsel. View a full list of case numbers here: MCDA Felonies and Misdemeanors Dismissed by the Court 2022. The number of felony hearings impacted by the crisis is nearly 2,500. These cases include property crime, crimes involving a firearm, low-level assaults, and domestic violence cases. See more information about these cases here: Felony Dismissals Breakdown.

DA Mike Schmidt announces guilty verdict in 2020 protest case 

PORTLAND, Oregon – Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt announced that on Wednesday, November 16, a 12-person jury rendered a guilty verdict for Timothy Swales on two charges including Felony Elude and Reckless Driving. A Multnomah County Circuit Court judge sentenced him to 18-months formal probation and temporarily revoked his license. 

In July 2020, a group of over one hundred protesters blocked all lanes of traffic in the area of the Portland Police Bureau Southeast Precinct off of East Burnside and Southeast 47th Avenue. Portland police officers commanded the group to disperse. The group did not comply. Officers subsequently formed a line and walked west to move the crowd away from the area. As officers walked, a vehicle without plates approached them from behind, driving in the direction of the officers and the protesters. 

An officer approached the driver, Swales, and commanded him to stop the vehicle and turn off the engine. Swales did not comply and continued to drive in the direction of the officers and protesters. Officers continued to command Swales to stop the vehicle. The car then stopped before lurching forward several times in the direction of the officers. 

Officers then broke a passenger window to gain entry to the vehicle to stop it. Swales then put the car in reverse at a speed of approximately 30 miles per hour and attempted to make a J-turn. A responding patrol car then struck Swales's car to stop it. An open container of alcohol was found in Swales's vehicle. He was arrested at the scene. The incident was captured on video. 

The Multnomah County District Attorney’s office issued nearly 200 protest-related cases between 2020 and 2022 for criminal prosecution. Each case is in various stages of the prosecutorial process, including pending trial, plea agreement, sentenced to prison or probation, or in warrant status. Visit MCDA’s press release page for both real-time information on protest cases and other cases of public interest and as an archive of past cases. 

The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office would like to thank the Portland Police Bureau for their work on this case.

DA Mike Schmidt releases new property crime data - 11/16/22

DA Mike Schmidt releases new property crime data 

PORTLAND, Oregon – Today, Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt released new property crime data for public inspection. 

DA Schmidt published an earlier iteration of this data featuring numbers from 2019 through 2021 in March of this year in an opinion piece submitted to the Oregonian articulating system-wide challenges in the criminal justice system and the impact on public safety. Today, DA Schmidt released numbers from 2019 through the third quarter of 2022. The full data set can be viewed here: Portland Property Crime 2019-2022 Q3

The data set includes the volume of crimes reported measured against those referred for prosecution, referred to as a clearance rate, both in numbers and as a rate. For example, 954 car theft cases were referred by police for prosecution in the first three quarters of 2022 in Multnomah County. Of those, 687 were issued for prosecution or 72%. In 2019, the average prosecution rate was 62% for stolen vehicles, indicating a higher rate of motor vehicle theft prosecutions today than pre-pandemic. 

“When these cases are referred to us, I have directed my attorneys to prosecute aggressively. Victims of property crime range from individuals experiencing houselessness, to renters, and home and business owners. The impacts are far-reaching and cannot be tolerated. We must continue to fight for accountability with our limited resources,” DA Mike Schmidt Stated. 

Prosecution rates have been largely consistent since 2019, with a downtick in some areas at the start of the pandemic followed by a quick recovery to pre-pandemic rates by the end of 2020. 

“Property crime is often underreported, time-consuming to investigate, and hugely destructive of public confidence and safety.  We must continue to improve our BOEC and police staffing to improve response times and investigate thoroughly these crimes,” Portland Police Association President Aaron Schmautz stated. 

“The Portland Police Association welcomes partnership with our justice system partners to ensure these cases don’t fall through the cracks. Thorough investigations paired with aggressive prosecution and accountability is critical in restoring public trust in our justice system and keeping our city safe,” President Schmautz continued. 

The data set includes clearance and prosecution rates for burglaries, robberies, motor vehicle thefts, theft, and criminal mischief. 

Below is a snapshot of prosecution rates the most recent quarter of 2022:

Burglary prosecution rate: 84% 

Robbery prosecution rate: 72% 

Motor vehicle theft prosecution rate: 77%

Theft in the first-degree prosecution rate: 65%

Criminal mischief* prosecution rate: 73%

*Criminal charge associated with graffiti.

DA Mike Schmidt announces 80-month sentence for Michael Walton, 30, for attempted robbery with a blow torch

PORTLAND, Oregon – Today, Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt announced that Michael Scott Walton, 30, was sentenced to 80 months in prison by a Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge for Attempted Robbery in the First Degree and Attempted Assault in the First Degree.

In October 2022, the victim had just picked up a DoorDash order for delivery at the 7-11 in the area of Southeast Stark Street and Southeast 147th Avenue. As he entered his vehicle, Walton approached him from behind with a blow torch that was aflame. An aerosol was used to make the flame more powerful. He pushed the blow torch toward the victim’s head and said, “Give me your keys!”. The flame of the blow torch singed the victim’s hair and burned and melted areas on his jacket. The victim declined to give Walton his keys. Walton then vacated the area. Responding Portland police officers identified Walton near the area of the incident with the assistance of the victim and placed him under arrest. Video surveillance confirmed the incident. 

“The facts of this case are terrifying. To sneak up on a person from behind with a blow torch and threaten them is absolutely unacceptable. I am satisfied that today's sentence will serve the interests of justice in this case,” stated Deputy District Attorney Christopher Shull. 

The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office thanks the Portland Police Bureau for their work on this case.

DA Mike Schmidt announces arraignment of Nicole Hileman, 41, for bias crime against a transit employee

PORTLAND, Oregon – Today Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt announced that Nicole Anne Hileman, 41, was arraigned on five charges including Bias Crime in the First Degree, Assault in the Fourth Degree, and three counts of Interfering with Public Transport.

The charges stem from an incident on Wednesday, November 9, 2022. A TriMet customer safety supervisor responded to a disturbance on a MAX train in the area of Southeast Bybee Boulevard. Hileman allegedly called a man unknown to her on the train racial slurs and threatened to punch him. The safety supervisor instructed Hileman and the man to deboard the MAX. The man complied while Hileman and the safety supervisor remained on the train. Hileman then allegedly stated that the safety supervisor had taken the man’s side in the confrontation because she was “on his team” which she interpreted to mean they were both of the same or similar race. 

In response, Hileman allegedly stood up as though she was about to deboard but instead spit a combination of saliva and food on the front of the safety supervisor’s body. The safety supervisor then physically detained Hileman in response to the escalating behavior until police arrived to effectuate an arrest. Hileman resisted and struck the safety supervisor in the head with her fist and kicked her in the leg. The safety supervisor reported the pain in her head as a 4 out of 10 and was later diagnosed with a concussion. Once police officers arrived and arrested Hileman, she allegedly referred to the victim as “it” and repeatedly inquired as to what her gender was.

A charging document is only an accusation of a crime. Hileman is innocent unless and until proven guilty.

DA Mike Schmidt announces guilty plea for Joseph Conn, 49, for Attempted Murder, other charges 
 

PORTLAND, Oregon – Today, Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt announced that Joseph Michael Conn, 49, has pled guilty to four charges including two counts of Attempted Murder in the First Degree, one count of Attempted Robbery in the First Degree with a Firearm and one count of Recklessly Endangering Another Person. The plea agreement contains a 12.5-year prison sentence. 

In April 2022, a private security guard working at the Troutdale Outlet Mall confronted two women who had stolen multiple pairs of shoes from Rack Room Shoes. During the confrontation, Conn appeared and pointed a gun at the security guard. After the guard backed away, Conn and the two women drove away from the mall with the stolen merchandise. Multnomah County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) deputies located the vehicle and initiated a traffic stop. The vehicle did not stop and proceeded onto the freeway.  MCSO deputies pursued the vehicle, deploying spike strips at one point. Despite the tires being spiked, the vehicle continued off the freeway onto NE Sandy Boulevard.

Pursuing deputies then heard an initial round of gunshots fired. They saw Conn point a gun out of the rear driver's side window and fire more shots.  One of the rounds struck the front grill of the pursuing MCSO vehicle. Another bullet hit a civilian's vehicle during the course of the pursuit. None of the rounds fired hit anyone.  The vehicle that Conn was in crashed and Conn and the two women attempted to flee the crash scene on foot. Deputies apprehended Conn and one of the females. Deputies found the gun Conn used next to the crashed vehicle. 

Sentencing is currently scheduled for January 6, 2023. 

The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office thanks the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office and Gresham Police Department for their work on this case.

DA Mike Schmidt announces arraignment of ‘anarchist’ member for disorderly conduct on night of midterm election 

PORTLAND, Oregon – Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt announced that Jarrid Bailey Huber, 23, was arraigned on Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree and Interfering with a Peace Officer on Wednesday, November 9, 2022.
 

The charges stem from an incident on November 8, 2022, the evening of local, state, and national elections. Huber and his associates were preparing for a direct-action event and allegedly pushed multiple large dumpsters into the street on Southwest Park Avenue. The dumpsters blocked the roadway in an area near an election night event.  Huber and his associates were allegedly dressed in all black and wore black masks, a tactic referred to as “black-bloc” which is used by anarchists during direct-action events. A Portland Police Bureau officer approached the group in his vehicle after observing the traffic obstruction. The group then allegedly pushed the dumpsters behind the officer's vehicle, blocking the street behind it. The officer exited his vehicle and commanded the group to stop, to which they questioned ‘why’ and began to walk away. He ordered that they stop again, and they subsequently began to run. Other officers arrived at the scene and effectuated an arrest. 

A charging document is only an accusation of a crime. Huber is innocent unless and until proven guilty.
