Here is the latest Oregon news from The Associated Press


PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A May Day march comprised of a variety of unrelated but unified causes snaked its way through downtown Portland yesterday, snarling traffic but ending without violence. Wednesday’s actions attracted hundreds of people. It blocked one of Portland’s main bridges to the west side and clogged another busy east-west artery through the city center.

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – A Eugene man has been convicted of sexually abusing two international students at the University of Oregon. The Register-Guard reports 35-year-old Christopher Mack faces more than six years in prison at today’s sentencing. Lane County Judge Debra Vogt found Mack guilty following a non-jury trial. Defense attorney David Hill said he will appeal the verdict.

CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) – Police say a Corvallis man got behind the wheel less than two hours after being stopped for drunken driving – not long enough to sober up. The Corvallis Gazette-Times reports that 40-year-old Juan Jose Mejia Gutierrez had a blood-alcohol content of 0.15 when he arrived at jail early Sunday. He was arrested a short time later with a BAC of 0.13.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – The man who killed two people and wounded another at a suburban Oregon mall bought more than 100 rounds of ammunition in the days before the attack. That information is in a 926-page report the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office released yesterday. Jacob Roberts fired into crowds of people at the Clackamas Town Center before killing himself Dec. 11.
