PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A man who had been on the run for more than two decades after being charged with the kidnapping and torture of two prostitutes in Oregon has pleaded guilty to the crimes.

Paul Jackson entered guilty pleas Thursday to kidnapping, rape, sodomy, sex abuse and unlawful sexual penetration as part of a plea deal.

Jackson was arrested last fall in Mexico, where authorities say he had been living for several years under an assumed name.

Jackson disappeared in 1991 while awaiting trial on charges that he and his older brother kidnapped prostitutes and held them captive.

His brother, Vance Roberts, was convicted in 2007 of similar charges. He is serving a 108-year prison sentence.

Jackson faces an 18-year sentence when he’s sentenced Tuesday.
