CLACKAMAS COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE - Jorge KeymolenA Woodburn man was sentenced to three and a half years in prison on June 26 for his role in the death of a Wilsonville man.

Jorge Keymolen, 30, pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide on June 5 for the death of Randy Pigeon, 46, who died a month after Keymolen assaulted him at a Wilsonville bar in June 2016.

Keymolen was accused of causing Pigeon's death after punching him in the head in the early morning hours June 25, 2016, at Wankers Corner Saloon and Cafe. Keymolen reportedly gave a single blow to Pigeon's head, knocking him to the ground. A Clackamas County district attorney called the punch a "sucker-knockout punch" that "was an extremely powerful blow to the head" in one court document.

Pigeon was taken to the hospital with severe injuries. While at the hospital, Pigeon, according to court records, went in and out of a coma, had a blood clot in his brain and suffered a stroke and a heart attack before passing away on Aug. 8, 2016.

Keymolen was indicted for one count of second-degree assault and one count of fourth-degree assault before Pigeon's death, with charges of second-degree manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide added in an amended indictment dated Aug. 26, 2016.

With his guilty plea, the other charges against Keymolen were dismissed.

Keymolen is currently held at the Coffee Creek Intake Center.
