Man Accused of Sexually Abusing Philomath Woman Since Childhood

On Thursday, Juan Leal- Galvez was arraigned in Benton County Circuit Court on over three dozen charges of sexually abusing a Philomath woman. Now in college, court documents indicate the woman told a physician the abuse started when she was age 7.

The woman says the abuse occurred about 15 times monthly, and only ended in December of 2018. The Department of Human Services forwarded the physicians report to Philomath Police in February.

An Albany resident, Leal-Galvez, age 46, pleaded not guilty to all the charges. His bail is at $3.7 million, and he is being held at the Benton County Jail.
