Daniel Hensley Sentenced to 15 Years in Prison for 2022 Gresham Manslaughter Case

September 20, 2023

Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt announced today that a Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge sentenced Daniel Roy Hensley, 34, to 15 years in prison for a 2022 fatal shooting in Gresham.

Incident

On March 11, 2022, law enforcement responded to a strip mall in Gresham on the report of a shooting shortly after midnight. Responding officers found Corey Monroe on the ground suffering from a single gunshot wound to his chest. Before being transported to OHSU, Monroe identified the person who shot him. He died a short time later at the hospital. Gresham Police Department detectives and members of the East Multnomah County Major Crimes Team conducted an investigation, which culminated in the arrest of Daniel Roy Hensley. A grand jury indicted Hensley in April of 2022.

Plea and Sentencing

Deputy District Attorney Brad Kalbaugh represented the state in this case. As part of a plea agreement negotiated with the defendant and his counsel, Hensley pled guilty on Monday to one count of Manslaughter in the First Degree and one count of Unlawful Use of a Weapon with a firearm.

Judge Eric Dahlin imposed the 15-year prison sentence Monday. Hensley has been transferred from custody in Multnomah County to the Oregon Department of Corrections to serve his sentence.

The DA’s Office thanks the Gresham Police Department and the East Multnomah County Major Crimes Team for their assistance with this case.
