Multnomah County District Attorney Rod Underhill announced that 50-year-old Lorinda Marie Goodin received a 120 month prison sentence after pleading guilty to one count of compelling prostitution and one count of using a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct.
“Lorinda Marie Goodin betrayed the victim in one of the most horrific ways imaginable by exploiting and selling her for sex to men willing to take advantage of a child. The victim’s unwavering strength and courage over a 12 year period inspires us and others to continue to advocate for crime victims of sexual assault and human trafficking,” said Multnomah County Deputy District Attorney Tara Gardner, who prosecuted this case.
Goodin is currently serving a 275 month prison sentence for committing two armed bank robberies in Multnomah County, two armed bank robberies in Lane County, and to possessing ammunition after having been previously convicted of eight bank robberies.
The prison sentence imposed in Multnomah County will run consecutive to the remaining time federally imposed.
In 2018, the Portland Police Bureau’s Sexual Assault Kit Initiative Workgroup learned about the abuse allegations and contacted the victim.
The investigation revealed that Goodin set up at least two arrangements so that men could sexually exploit the victim, a 14 year old child at the time.
The district attorney’s office presented the court with the victim’s impact statement that read in part:
“Every day of my life has been affected by this woman. Relationships have been infected. I am proud and feel blessed to be here [and to be] given this opportunity to finally learn what justice feels like for the first time. I am ready to come to complete peace with this matter and let it rest eternally. …[The defendant] inflicted trauma, anguish, pain and suffering with a cruel and merciless demeanor.”
The victim in this case does not want media contact. The district attorney’s office is requesting media refrain from contacting her.
