Registered Sex Offender Excluded From Portland Parks

February 07, 2005 00:00


Recently, some citizens contacted an off-duty Portland Police Officer to express their concerns about the behavior of 45-year-old Terry Michael Martin. The citizens stated that Martin was contacting children in the locker room of Southwest Portland Community Center, swimming with children, befriending young boys by offering them gifts and ski trips, and showering naked with the children. The officer documented the allegations and forwarded them to the Family Services Division for investigation. The investigation revealed that the information was accurate, but did not constitute a crime. Investigators determined that Martin was a Registered Sex Offender and subsequently excluded him from all Portland Parks pools and centers.

Martin has prior convictions for two counts of Sex Abuse in the First Degree, six counts of Sex Abuse in the Second Degree, and two counts of Kidnapping in the Second Degree. He also has convictions in Washington State in 1989 of Rape of a Child Third Degree and in 1991, of Communication with a Minor.

Martin resides in the 3200 block of SW Lake Drive in Wilsonville, Oregon. He is described as a white male, 6’02” tall, 260 pounds, brown hair, and brown eyes. Martin’s prior victims were teenage males that he befriended at athletic clubs and community pools. The purpose of this community notification is to reduce the chances of further victimization by this offender as well as promote community awareness and safety. However, be advised that intimidating, harassing, or threatening of this registered offender will not be tolerated and may be a crime.
