Suspect Indicted For Distributing Child Pornography

(Portland, OR) -- A man who was arrested last year for alleged sexual abuse of a child in Clackamas County has been indicted for possessing and distributing child pornography while awaiting trial. Officials say 33-year-old Raphael Whitfield was indicted by a federal grand jury earlier this month. Whitfield posted bail after his arrest in February 2021. Police found evidence he was downloading child pornography and searched his residence. When police tried to arrest him, he barricaded himself inside of his residence and threatened to kill himself. He was taken into custody and hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. He has pleaded not guilty to the new charges.
