ANTHONY MEREDITHEUGENE, Ore. — A former Eugene resident will spend more than six years in prison for raping a 12-year-old girl.

Anthony Meredith, 22, pleaded guilty to raping the girl at Alton Baker Park during a game of hide and seek in 2008.

A sketch was released at the time of the assault, but Meredith wasn’t arrested until a DNA match linked him to the case last year. He was living in Utah at the time.

As part of the plea deal, Meredith will also be under supervision for nearly four years after he’s out of prison.
