PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A Salem man was sentenced to 50 years in prison after a jury found him guilty on seven counts related to the sexual abuse of two children.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office first began investigating Michael Champagne in June 2019.

Investigators found that Champagne had been abusing two girls under the age of 10 over a period of three years.

Champagne was previously convicted of attempted sexual abuse of a young child in 2008.

He served just over one year in prison for that case.
