Plea hearing for accused Woodburn priest postponed

The Oregonian

A court hearing for the Rev. Angel Armando Perez, accused of sex abuse involving a 12-year-old boy, has been postponed until Sept. 17.

The hearing, at which Perez is expected to enter a plea, was previously scheduled for Sept. 4. The Marion County Sheriff’s Office announced the schedule change without explanation.

Perez, 46, has been indicted on charges of first degree sexual abuse, use of a child in display of sexually explicit conduct, furnishing liquor to a minor, tampering with physical evidence and drunken driving.

A probable cause affidavit filed by police said the alleged victim had planned to spend the night at Perez’s home on Aug. 12 after the priest asked his parents if he could take the boy to the mountains.
