COQUILLE, Ore. (AP) - A Coquille man convicted of raping a child has been sentenced to 50 years in prison.

Coos County District Attorney Paul Frasier says Frank Wayne Noakes is ineligible for any form of early release or parole, other than credit for time already served.

Jurors earlier this month found Noakes guilty of rape, sodomy, sexual abuse and unlawful sexual penetration - all in the first degree - after a two-day trial.

Frasier says the victim was younger than 12 and known to Noakes, who’s 44.
