PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A Portland man guilty of sexually abusing a child in 1992 will spend 11 years behind bars.

Dana Bell, 40, was sentenced Tuesday to prison and he must register as a sex offender.

Bell was indicted by a grand jury in July 2012. The charges stemmed from an incident that occurred in 1992 when he was 19 years old.

The victim was 8 years old at the time the abuse began, according to police. Detectives interviewed additional victims, both male and female, who reported being sexually assaulted by Bell, as well. Police said the statute of limitations had expired in those cases, however.

A judge found Bell guilty of rape, sodomy and sex abuse charges in May.
