PORTLAND, Ore. – A federal court jury in Portland has convicted a long-haul trucker of aggravated sexual abuse for assaults on an 8-year-old girl during a coast-to-coast trip.
Jurors were told the girl’s mother asked 36-year-old Alexander Lukashov Jr. of Portland to take the child and her little brother on his cross-country haul so that he could drop the boy with relatives in Montana. Prosecutors say the man repeatedly molested the girl after dropping the boy off.
