Cave Junction foster parent sentenced for sexually abusing girls
A Cave Junction man and former foster parent was sentenced today in Josephine County Circuit by Judge Thomas Hull to six years and three months in prison for sexually abusing two girls who were placed in his care.
Deputy District Attorney Ryan Mulkins says the two girls who were under the age of 14 were removed from an abusive situation and went to live with 36-year-old Beau James Slippey and his wife at their home on Junction Avenue in Cave Junction in early 2010. During the next year, Slippey sexually abused the girls.
In Dec. 2010, Slippey left the home but his wife continued to care for the girls. She physically abused the girls who were then transferred to another foster home where they began counseling. The older girl told the counselor about the abuse which led to law enforcement’s investigation.
Hull had previously found Slippey guilty on Feb. 21 of two counts of first-degree sexual abuse.
