Umatilla County man receives 12 years in prison for child abuse

PENDLETON, Ore. -- A Pilot Rock man was sentenced to more than 12 years in prison Wednesday for the sexual abuse of three minor girls.

Karl Louis Lyon had pleaded guilty to three counts of first-degree sexual abuse on Monday.

Umatilla County Circuit Judge Christopher Brauer sentenced Lyon to 150 months in prison.

Prosecutors said the sentence was just because Lyon's guilty plea meant his victims did not need to testify.
