A 23-year-old man was sentenced to prison after pleading guilty to arson for a fire that was set outside the Portland Police Bureau's North Precinct last June.
The Multnomah County District Attorney's Office said Gavaughn Streeter-Hillerich pleaded guilty to first-degree arson. He also pleaded guilty to unlawful use of a weapon, coercion and two counts of fourth-degree assault from two other Multnomah County cases. He was sentenced to 60 months in prison.
The investigation began on June 26, 2020, when protesters gathered near the North Precinct, located at 449 Northeast Emerson Street, and other businesses. The district attorney's office, citing court documents, said Streeter-Hillerich was caught on camera setting a dumpster on fire near the precinct's northwest corner.
