BEND, Ore. (AP) - A 40-year-old man who was convicted at age 15 of raping and murdering a high school classmate in suburban Portland has been assigned a parole officer in Central Oregon.

Conrad Engweiler is set to be released from state prison in less than two weeks. The Bend Bulletin reports (https://bit.ly/1vkLYXA ) that Engweiler’s father lives in Sisters.

The Oregon parole board ruled last month that Engweiler should be released. It was a closely watched decision that angered the victim’s family.

Engweiler’s case was repeatedly before the courts because he was initially sentenced under unclear guidelines.

The appearance before the parole board resulted from an Oregon Supreme Court ruling that said he was entitled to time off for good behavior.

Following his release, Engweiler will be supervised for a minimum of three years and must register as a sex offender.
