PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – A man received a six-year prison sentence Friday after pleading guilty to sexually abusing a woman in a Beaverton motel room.
Officials say Glen Sagastume-Garcia met with a female acquaintance on Feb. 10, 2023 for dinner before heading to the motel, where they “became intimate.” Although the act was initially consensual, police say Sagastume-Garcia eventually “wanted to engage in additional sex acts.”
The woman demanded Sagastume-Garcia stop, but officials say he “refused and used force to subdue her.” When she attempted to call 911, he took her phone and hung it up.
She eventually escaped to the motel lobby, where police were notified before she was transported to a local hospital. There, medical staff say they found bruising on her arms along with DNA evidence of the attack.
On Jan. 26, Sagastume-Garcia pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree sex abuse. After spending 75 months in prison, he will serve a term of post-prison supervision with recommendations for treatment. He will also be required to register as a sex offender.
