State of Oregon v Brandon Farley

In August 2019, videographer Brandon Farley was attempting to gain access to an event hosted by local resource group Outside In at a nearby church. Due to prior interactions with Outside In, his ticket had been revoked and he was denied entry to the event. Based on trial testimony, he spent a large portion of the events duration attempting to bypass event security to trespass to the event, including an altercation with event security that was prosecuted as harassment.

During the pre-trial period, Mr. Farley went through several public defenders, including one that court records indicate severed himself from the case for a 'breakdown in attorney client relationship' after allegations of Mr. Farley making defamatory statements.

In August of 2021, Mr. Farley represented himself in a bench trial, where he was convicted of a criminal trespass but acquitted of the harassment charge. His sentence included bench probation with a requirement to seek mental health intake and possible treatment, a judgement that he subsequently expressed to us that he would refuse to comply with.

This case was tracked along with case 20CR08661, but at the conclusion of trial the DA dropped the charges from that case.
