Seaside man gets 25 years for sexually abusing 12-year-old

SEASIDE, Ore. (AP) — A Seaside man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl.

The Daily Astorian reports that 40-year-old Jeffrey Charles Smith pleaded guilty to 8 counts of sodomy and was sentenced Tuesday by Clatsop County Circuit Court Judge Philip Nelson.

The sentence does not allow for parole. As part of his sentencing Smith is subject to post-prison supervision and not allowed to have contact with the victim. He will also be registered as a sex offender.

Nelson told Smith the victim will struggle with the effects of the crime, which he called "a train wreck for kids that have gone through this type of traumatic experience."
