Shewell pleaded guilty on February 7 to the sex abuse charges and is currently in custody at Coffee Creek Correctional Center in Wilsonville, Oregon.
At the time of the crimes, Shewell was working as a teacher’s aid at the child development center, and has in the past volunteered at several area schools. The victim was not someone he supervised, said Kohlmeyer.
Anyone with information about Shewell is asked to contact Detective Kris Knox at 503.588.6050, ext. 7162.
