Kyle Shinn pleaded guilty to charges beginning when the victim was 6 years old.

A 38-year-old Gresham man was sentenced to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to a bevy of crimes related to the sexual abuse of a child.

Kyle Shinn was sentenced Wednesday, Jan. 26, in the Multnomah County District Court on charges of first-degree sodomy, first-degree sexual abuse, solicitation to use a child in sexual explicit conduct, and tampering with a witness.

The abuse began when the victim was 6 years old in the summer of 2018. She spoke to her parents about the abuse, and after authorities were contacted, Shinn fled the state. He was arrested in April 2019 in Iowa.

"The victim in this case, now 9 years old, has demonstrated incredible bravery as we've fought for justice," said Deputy District Attorney Melissa Marrero. "I am hopeful that today's outcome helps her and her family move forward with their lives."

Both the Sandy and Gresham Police Department assisted in the case.
