LINN COUNTY, Oregon - The Linn County Sheriff's Office reports Brandon Dale Morgan, 45, from Lyons, was sentenced Wednesday after being found guilty in a jury trial on May 15, 2021, of three counts of sex abuse-related crimes.

Linn County detectives investigated the case back in 2019 that led to his arrest and conviction for two counts of Sodomy in the First Degree and one count of Attempted Sex Abuse in the First Degree.

"Morgan will serve 25 years on each Sodomy charge, which will run concurrently and 18 months for the Attempted Sex Abuse in the First Degree, which will run consecutively," the sheriff's office said.

A Hillsboro man was charged with two counts of first-degree sodomy in Linn County Circuit Court last week.

Brandon Dale Morgan, 44, was charged on Thursday afternoon with sex crimes.

Morgan is accused of committing the crimes between January 2015 and December 2017, and the victim is a female who was under the age of 12 at the time, according to the charging document in the case.

The Linn County Sheriff's Office investigated the case.

Morgan's bail was set at $50,000 by Judge David Delsman. On Thursday, $5,000 of that amount was posted and Morgan was released from the Linn County Jail, according to a security release agreement.

His next hearing is scheduled for June 1, according to court paperwork.

While the security release agreement has Morgan's mailing address in Lyons, Oregon's online court database has his home address listed in Hillsboro.
