NEWPORT — A series of sex offenses involving a child more than 15 years ago caught up with a Waldport man, who is spending the next 10 years in state prison for his crimes.

Kenneth Lee Casper II, 47, was sentenced at a June 11 hearing in Lincoln County Circuit Court before Judge Debra Kay Vogt. The sentencing took place several days after a jury found Casper guilty June 5 of three counts of sexual abuse in the first degree.

Each of the charges referenced a period of time in which a crime took place, with the first incident happening “on or about between April 1, 1996 to Aug. 30, 1998.” The first incident took place when the child was about 10 years old.
