EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A Lane County man charged with sexually abusing a girl more than a decade ago has been sentenced to 29 years in prison.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/1WbUHfs ) that 60-year-old Ray Alan Butler, of Creswell, was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty to sexual abuse and unlawful penetration.

Butler was arrested in March after a woman, now 23, told police he had molested her over the course of several years when she was a child.

Court records say police recorded a phone call between Butler and the victim, during which he allegedly admitted to the abuse.

The Lane County District Attorney’s Office says detectives found he had previously been convicted of sexually abusing another child in Curry County in 1985.
