OREGON CITY, OR (KPTV) -

An Oregon City man was sentenced to 16 years in prison for sexually abusing a child.

Detectives began investigating sexual assault reports involving 34-year-old Michael Scott Morris in November 2015.

Police said the victim was 13-years-old when the abuse began and continued over an extended period of time.

Morris was indicted by a grand jury in August 2016. He pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges of second-degree rape, second-degree sodomy and two counts of first-degree sexual abuse.

He was then sentenced to 16 years in prison.

During the investigation, detectives said they did not identify any other victims of Morris.
