Clackamas County Probation Officer Gets 35 Years in Prison For Raping Children

Clackamas County probation officer Gordon Mead Jr

A former Clackamas County probation officer was sentenced Friday to 35 years and one month in prison for repeatedly raping two girls beginning when they were 5 and 7.

Clackamas County Circuit Judge Michael Wetzel sentenced Gordon Mead Jr., 69, for first-degree rape, first-degree sexual abuse and first-degree sodomy of the two girls, which occurred separately between 2004 and 2012, court records show. A county jury found Mead guilty of the charges on March 2.

One of the girls told her parents about the abuse in November 2015 when she was 12 and police were notified, court documents show. She also directed investigators to the older victim, who had revealed to her that Mead had abused her as well.

Mead was indicted in June 2016.

Mead worked for the Clackamas County parole and probation office from November 1983 until he resigned in May 2001, state records show. He was a Clackamas County deputy between August 1975 and February 1982.

A third person testified during a pre-trial hearing in the case, saying Mead raped her in the mid-80s, when she was 9, according to a memo by the district attorney’s office. The woman claimed she was too frightened to tell anyone for years.

Mead wasn’t charged for any alleged abuse against her.
