Man sentenced in child sex abuse case

ROSEBURG, Ore. -- A Winston man is going to be behind bars for the next 25 years after he was sentenced for sexually abusing a young child.

Larry Beasley, 46, was sentenced to 300 months in prison last week.

He was convicted of sodomy and sexual assault of a 6-year-old.

The sentence is mandatory for sexual assault of a child under 12, and also comes with lifetime post-prison supervision.

Steve Hoddle with the Douglas County District Attorney's office says the child was known to Beasley.

Hoddle also adds that Beasley has prior convictions for sex offenses involving minors.
