Rape suspect arrested


Esten Mounsey

Esten Alton Mounsey, 39, was arrested Monday afternoon, July 21, at his home at 500 E. 14th St. on first-degree charges of rape and sodomy, according to Wasco County District Attorney Eric Nisley.

Mounsey is being held on bail of $500,000. He was scheduled for arraignment in circuit court Tuesday afternoon at 1 p.m., after press deadlines. He was arrested at 12:40 p.m. Monday by Det. Jamie Carrico. First-degree rape is described as forcible intercourse, while first-degree sodomy is described as forcible oral or anal sex, Nisley said. The investigation is ongoing so Nisley declined to provide more information. Police logs show an earlier call to Mounsey’s home on a domestic violence report Sunday morning.
