On Friday February 5, 2016, 42-year-old Janet Lynn Porter was arraigned in Multnomah County Court on six counts of Criminal Mistreatment in the First Degree, a felony, after her indictment by a Multnomah County Grand Jury.
Porter was arraigned out of custody and was not booked into jail on the charges.
The indictment stems from an October 2015 investigation that started when her boyfriend, 41-year-old Thomas Gene Duncan Jr., was arrested after a federal investigation into child pornography. During that investigation, Portland Police Bureau Child Abuse Team detectives learned that Duncan had been sexually active with Porter's 12-year-old daughter.
Duncan was indicted on numerous sex crime charges by a Multnomah County Grand Jury and is facing additional federal charges. He is currently in federal custody and has not yet been arraigned on the Multnomah County charges.
At this point there is no information of any additional victims but anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Stephen Gandy at 503-823-0185, firstname.lastname@example.org.
