HILLSBORO, Ore. – A 95-year-old man is facing felony sex abuse and rape charges, accused of having sex with an underage girl nearly 18 years ago in Washington County.

Jail records show 95-year-old Joseph Campos was booked into the Washington County Jail on first-degree rape, four counts of first-degree sexual abuse, and one count of unlawful sexual penetration. His bail is set at $50,000.

The alleged abuse happened on two separate instances in 1999 and 2000, when Campos was 77 years old.

A secret indictment filed early this month claims that the victim in the case was under 14 years old.

The indictment does not indicate how Campos knew the victim.

Campos is scheduled to be arraigned on the charges Wednesday afternoon.
