CLACKAMAS COUNTY, OR (KPTV) -

A former youth football and wrestling coach accused of sexually abusing children in Oregon and Washington has been sentenced to nearly 19 years in prison.

Kenneth Scott Carroll, 43, was arrested in Montana and extradited back to Oregon in September 2014.

He pleaded guilty earlier this month to four counts of first-degree sex abuse and two counts of second-degree sodomy. He was sentenced Monday.

Clackamas County deputies said his crimes in Oregon occurred in or around Colton from 1998 to 2002. He was a football and wrestling coach for the Colton School District, including serving as the wrestling coach at Colton Middle School from 1994-1998.

In Washington, police said there was evidence he might have been abusing children as early as 1997. Carroll coached the Puyallup Roughriders football program and the Puyallup Falcons junior wrestling team.

Washington detectives said they found evidence that Carroll had recorded the abuse.  

Investigators originally said they identified eight victims in the two states. Most of them are now adults who were abused in their early teens, according to detectives.

Carroll was sentenced to 18 years and nine months in prison Monday. He must also register as a sex offender.
