HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP) - An Oregon man convicted of kidnapping and attempting to sexually assault a jogger has been sentenced to life in prison.

A Washington County judge gave the sentence to Thomas Davis on Friday, a little more than a week after a jury found him guilty of the December 2012 attack in Aloha.

The Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/ns0nJk ) the conviction was Davis‘ third for a sex crime, and that made him eligible for a life sentence.

Prosecutors say Davis and the jogger didn’t know each other, and Davis probably targeted the woman because of her small size.

DNA testing revealed Davis‘ saliva on a glove worn by the victim. She was wearing it as she fought him off.
