A tale of two counties

An alert reader sends along this story, in which a serial burglar working Beaverton was sentenced to nine years in prison. Nine years!

Christina Cordon, 38, pled guilty to six counts of second-degree burglary. The burglaries took place from March through September of last year....

“Safety is a top priority in Washington County,” said Washington County District Attorney Kevin Barton. “Our residents and business owners deserve a safe community and with this conviction, we are sending a message to criminals who consider coming here to commit crime — stay out.”

In Portland, she'd be let go. In fact, she was. 

Cordon was living in a Portland homeless shelter at the time of these burglaries. Officials say she had three criminal cases open in Multnomah County, but was granted pretrial release months before burglarizing the first of several businesses.

D.A. Mikey strikes again.


  1. The ideology that leads to the squalor in Portland, is encouraging families to leave to city. The local print media doesn’t seem to notice. Maybe they condone the ideology

  2. Meanwhile, shooting someone dead in Multnomah County scores you four years now. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.koin.com/news/crime/killer-in-2019-portland-slaying-sent-to-prison/amp/
