Man pending trial for rape in the first degree now charged in connection to a second rape investigation

Today, Multnomah County District Attorney Rod Underhill announced that a grand jury has indicted 40-year-old Frank Domont Hall Jr. for allegedly raping and sexually abusing a minor in 2012.

Hall Jr. is currently in-custody pending trial and is charged with one count of rape in the first degree for an unrelated matter, which is being prosecuted by the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Untested Sexual Assault Kit Project.

The new indictment, filed on May 14, 2020, charges Hall Jr. with six counts of rape in the first degree, seven counts of sexual abuse in the first degree, and two counts of sodomy in the first degree.

It is alleged that Hall Jr. unlawfully and intentionally used force to sexually assault a minor on multiple occasions between February of 2012 and May of 2012.

The victim in this case does not want media contact. The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office is requesting media refrain from attempting to or actually contacting her.

This case is being investigated by the Portland Police Bureau’s Sex Crimes Unit, but is not a part of the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Untested Sexual Assault Kit Project or the Portland Police Bureau’s Sexual Assault Kit Initiative Grant Program.

No additional information can be released by the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office at this time pursuant to the Oregon Rules of Professional Conduct.

Like in all criminal and civil matters, electronic copies of court documents, which are not subject to a protective order, are available to the public through the Oregon eCourt Information (OECI) system.

A charging document is only an accusation of a crime. Hall Jr. is innocent unless and until proven guilty.

The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Sexual Assault Victim Advocate (SAVA) program provides 24-hour on-call response to victims of sexual assault in Multnomah County. Volunteers and staff respond to all local area hospitals to provide accompaniment for forensic rape exams, crisis intervention, resource referrals, and emotional support. This immediate crisis intervention service is then followed by ongoing support and advocacy throughout the investigation and prosecution of the case. The SAVA Program volunteers respond to approximately 270 sexual assault call outs each year.
