MEDFORD, Ore. — A former deportation officer with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) office in Medford has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for sex abuse charges, according to the Jackson County District Attorney's Office.
Oregon State Police (OSP) and ICE investigators arrested 55-year-old Blake Villagomez Northway in September, taking him to the Jackson County Jail and relieving him of his authority with the immigration agency.
Northway eventually pleaded guilty to five counts of Sodomy in the First Degree and pleaded "no contest" to one count of Incest in April, according to court documents.
On Wednesday, Judge Lisa Greif sentenced Northway to serve 25 years in prison with 20 years of post-prison supervision.
"As part of his sentence, Northway must register as a sex offender," the DA's office said.
An investigation by OSP and Medford Police found that Northway had been sexually abusing an underage relative between 2009 and 2018.
