Catalin Dulfu faces 15 counts each of Encouraging Child Sexual Abuse in the first and second degree

Attorney General John Kroger today announced the arraignment of a Lane County man on 30 child pornography counts.

Catalin Dulfu (DOB: 1/13/1959) of Eugene was arraigned Tuesday in Lane County Circuit Court on 15 counts of Encouraging Child Sexual Abuse in the First Degree and 15 counts of Encouraging Child Sexual Abuse in the Second Degree.

A criminal defendant is considered innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

Senior Assistant Attorney General Michael J. Slauson is prosecuting the case for the Oregon Department of Justice.

The public is strongly encouraged to report information involving on-line sexual exploitation of children to their local law enforcement agency or to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at or by calling 1-800-843-5678. Tips can be submitted anonymously.

The Oregon Department of Justice Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) unit investigates and prosecutes predators who use the internet to target and sexually exploit children. The unit works with district attorneys, law enforcement agencies and regional task forces that investigate online predators. ICAC is the only program in Oregon that is equipped with the necessary resources to catch sex predators throughout the state.

Since 2005, at least 166 internet predators have been convicted as a result of ICAC’s work.

Attorney General John Kroger leads the Oregon Department of Justice. The Department’s mission is to fight crime and fraud, protect the environment, improve child welfare, promote a positive business climate, and defend the rights of all Oregonians.
