Hammond man accused of
rape and other sex crimes
abuse for allegedly sucking on
a woman’s neck in 2016. The
alleged victims in both cases had
mental defects and, therefore,
were unable to provide consent.
Paiz has pleaded not guilty
to all charges.
Paiz, who has trouble hear-
ing and does not speak English,
has appeared confused at court
hearings. He underwent a
mental health evaluation after
an order from Judge Paula
Brownhill in November. Bail
has been set at $500,000 in
the 24-count case, and a status
check hearing has been sched-
uled for February.

A Hammond man has been
charged with 25 sex crimes,
including eight counts of
first-degree rape.
Mark Paiz Jr, 61, was
indicted in October for crimes
allegedly committed against
a woman from June through
September. For those alleged
crimes, he has been charged
with eight counts of first-de-
gree rape, eight counts of
first-degree sodomy and eight
counts of first-degree unlawful
sexual penetration.
Earlier this week, he was
indicted for first-degree sex
abuse charge. While appear-
ing via video from the Clat-
sop County Jail, he again was
unable to fully participate.
“I’ve talked to him and he
does not reply,” an interpreter
sitting next to him said. “I’ve
shouted at him.”
Bail has been set at
$250,000 in that case.
Paiz has previously been
convicted in Clatsop County
of first-degree criminal tres-
pass, fourth degree assault,
menacing and three times for
driving under the influence of
intoxicants. If convicted on
all charges, he faces a mini-
mum of more than 200 years
in prison.

John Lee Kidwell, 42, was
arrested earlier this week and
charged with 18 counts of
first-degree encouraging child
sex abuse. The charges stem
