74-year-old man arrested for sex abuse involving minor

September 16, 2002 00:00


On Monday, September 9, 2002, at 9:15a.m., Detectives from the Sexual Assault and Bias Crime Unit arrested and charged 74-year-old Vic Gerald Hastings with Using a Child in Display of Sexually Explicit Conduct, Sex Abuse in the First Degree, Encouraging Child Sexual Abuse in the First Degree, Invasion of Personal Privacy, Providing Liquor to a Person Under the Age of 21, and Distribution of a Controlled Substance to a Minor. Hastings, who was indicted by a Multnomah County Grand Jury, was lodged in the Justice Center Jail.

Investigators arrested Hastings after executing a search warrant at his Southeast Portland home and discovering a large quantity of evidence, including pornography. The investigation began in early August after receiving a complaint from a 15-year-old female. Investigators have located a second victim since initiating the investigation.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is encouraged to call Detective Mike Geiger at 503-823-0887.
