SALEM, Ore. (AP) — A Silverton man convicted of raping a child was sentenced Monday to 25 years in prison. The Statesman Journal reports a jury found Mauricio Barba Duran guilty of first-degree rape and sodomy in Polk County Circuit Court following a four-day trial, according to Polk County District Attorney Aaron Felton. Duran was acquitted of two counts of first-degree rape and two counts of first-degree sexual abuse. Additional counts of unlawful use of a weapon, coercion, and third-degree assault were dismissed before sentencing. Prosecutors say the child was between the ages of 6 and 11 when the crimes occurred.
