EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A man convicted of rape and other charges for sexually abusing a child in Lane County has been sentenced to nearly 43 years in prison.

The Register-Guard reports (https://goo.gl/vASA2P ) that 48-year-old William Isaac Parker III was sentenced Monday. He was found guilty earlier this month of rape, sodomy, sex abuse and using a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct.

Parker is accused of sexually assaulting an acquaintance’s child, whom he had lived with for a brief period. The alleged abuse began when the girl was 11 years old.

In court Monday, Parker accused the victim of lying and said he planned to appeal his conviction.

The judge noted that Parker had initially admitted the abuse to detectives, then later took back his statements.
