ALBANY — Francisco Lerado, 64, of Lebanon, sentenced Wednesday to 12 years in prison. He pleaded guilty in Linn County Court in February to first-degree sex abuse and second-degree unlawful sexual penetration.
The Lebanon Police Department investigated the case after receiving a report of abuse in July. Lerado was arrested in November and initially faced eight other sex crime charges, including first-degree rape. Those charges were dismissed as part of a plea agreement.
Prosecutor Ani Yardumian said the victim in the case was a minor female who Lerado knew, and the crimes occurred between December 2006 and December 2010.
Lerado, who will be required to register as a sex offender, will be on post-prison supervision for about four years.
