A 44-year-old man who climbed through a bedroom window last year and sexually abused a sleeping 9-year-old girl in the family’s apartment near Milwaukie was sentenced Monday to 27 years in prison.

Isidro Flores-Ramos made no statements in Clackamas County Circuit Court and appeared to choke back tears as his attorney told the judge that Flores-Ramos has a wife and children of his own in Mexico.

A jury on Friday found Flores-Ramos guilty of first-degree unlawful sexual penetration, first-degree sexual abuse, attempted first-degree rape, first-degree burglary and coercion after a four-day trial in the February 2017 attack.

Flores-Ramos also pleaded guilty to encouraging sexual assault of an animal in a separate case. He admitted to having at least five videos of people having sex with animals. He will serve his sentence in that case at the same time as the abuse case.

The girl’s mother told Flores-Ramos in court that their family will never forgive him and that they hoped the judge would show him no mercy.

Judge Douglas Van Dyk said Flores-Ramos earned his sentence, the maximum allowable under the law, not only for abusing the child, but for the lasting effect it will had on her and her family and for having the girl relive her abuse when she testified during trial.

The judge dismissed Flores-Ramos’ claims that his actions were spurred by an undisclosed mental illness. The judge said it was Flores-Ramos’ responsibly to protect others from the effects of his mental health.

Flores-Ramos didn’t know the girl or her family when he went through the window of an apartment in the 10400 block of Southeast Cook Court, authorities said. The girl’s screams caused him to flee back out the window.

Flores-Ramos was arrested two months later in the San Diego area near the Mexican border.

Deputy District Attorney Stacey Borgman said Flores-Ramos has a criminal history with convictions dating to the 1990s. He was deported to Mexico in 2001 after an Oregon prison sentence and remained in Mexico for about 12 years before going back to the U.S., she said.
