PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A man convicted of sexually abusing a transgender teen has been sentenced to more than six years in prison.

Michael Scott Colby, 32, pleaded guilty to first-degree sex abuse on May 18. He was sentenced Thursday.

Colby was initially indicted in July 2015.

According to court documents, the victim told police the abuse happened when he was 13 years old and met Colby in north Portland in 2013.

The victim, who identifies as a male, told investigators he got into Colby's car after being offered a cigarette, according to court documents.

Court documents state Colby was identified as the suspect using DNA found during a sexual assault examination.

Colby was sentenced Thursday to six years and three months in prison and he must register as a sex offender.
