Prison for Springfield man who admitted molesting girls
Russell Haney

PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) - A Springfield man was sentenced to prison after admitting he molested two girls in Eastern Oregon.
   
The East Oregonian newspaper reports that 47-year-old Russell Haney pleaded guilty to three charges of first-degree sexual abuse.
   
He admitted to twice touching a 7-year-old girl in 1994 and to touching an 8-year-old girl in 2005.
   
Umatilla County Judge Eva Temple sentenced Haney to 12 ½ years in prison, but he will get credit for the 19 months he spent in the county jail.
   
After prison, he must register as a sex offender and spend more than six years on post-prison supervision.
