PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A Multnomah County man has pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a 16-year-old baby sitter last summer.

The girl’s mother called Gresham police Sept. 28 after her daughter disclosed she had sex with a couple numerous times in the months she had been baby-sitting for them.

Troy Cawvey pleaded guilty Thursday to sex abuse and encouraging child sex abuse. The 26-year-old had faced charges related to videotaping the acts on his cell phone, but those were dropped in a plea deal with prosecutors.

The terms of the agreement call for a two-year prison term. Formal sentencing is set for April 14, the same day his co-defendant is scheduled to change her plea.

The victim’s mother did not address the court Thursday and declined an interview request.
