Corrections officer faces rape, child porn trials

PORT ANGELES — A Clallam Bay Corrections Center officer accused of raping an 11-year-old girl pleaded not guilty Wednesday to 14 child pornography charges and one count of voyeurism.

Alexis R. Bustillos Osuna of Port Angeles remained in the Clallam County jail Wednesday afternoon on $150,000 bail.

That’s $100,000 more than was set Nov. 10 after Osuna was charged with first-degree child rape for an assault that allegedly occurred between Nov. 2-6, when the girl’s mother was at work.

The 15 additional counts entered Thursday in Clallam County Superior Court grew out of a discovery that allegedly occurred at Osuna’s home a day later, on Nov. 11.

A family member was packing up Osuna’s clothes from a closet when a hard drive fell out of the pocket of his coat, according to Port Angeles Detective Erik Smith’s probable cause statement.

“There were hundreds of photos that [the person] described as child pornography,” Smith said.

Several videos showed male and female assailants, Smith said.

Images depicted in the photos and videos included male and female victims from infants to elementary school-age children and an exposed Osuna, according to police.

There were 47 sexual images of the girl Osuna allegedly assaulted.

Osuna was charged with raping her after the girl told her mother Osuna had touched her sexually.

The girl said she and Osuna were lying in bed when she awoke to him assaulting her, according to the probable cause statement.

A court order was obtained to record the girl talking to Osuna over the phone.

During the conversation, Osuna admitted to committing the assault, according to the probable cause statement.

Osuna also allegedly told the girl to keep what he had done “a secret.”

Judge Simon Barnhart on Wednesday set Dec. 18 for a status hearing on the pornography and voyeurism charges, the same date as a status hearing on the child-rape charge.

A seven- to 10-day trial on the rape charge is scheduled to begin Jan. 11.

A seven- to 10-day trial on the voyeurism and child pornography charges is scheduled to begin Jan. 25.

“A seven- to 10-day trial on these charges is probably a good estimate, only because I anticipate jury selection taking awhile,” Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Matthew Roberson told Barnhart.

“These types of cases aren’t cases where people are rushing to get on the jury.

“I do think this will be a more complicated case than the rape-of-a-child case.”

The first-degree voyeurism count stems from images of a woman in a bathroom that were stored on the hard drive that were taken without the woman’s knowledge, according to the probable cause statement.

It carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Each of eight charges of first-degree possession of depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct carries a maximum 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine.

Each of six counts of second-degree dealing in depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct carries the same sentence and fine.

The rape charge carries a maximum sentence of life in prison and a $50,000 fine.

It includes a special allegation that Osuna used his position of trust to commit the crime.

Osuna was hired at Clallam Bay Corrections Center on March 23. Prison spokesman Jeremy Barclay told Peninsula Daily News on Nov. 12 that Osuna would be placed on home assignment.
