Francisco San Juan-Jose, a Gervais man facing eight counts of rape, has been sentenced to serve nearly 19 years in prison.
The judgment came down on San Juan-Jose, 52, April 18, the same day he pleaded guilty to three of the eight charges. The other five charges were dismissed.
Each charge of rape is a class B felony with a sentence of 75 months, or six years, three months, each. The sentence also includes an additional 45 months of post-prison supervision.
San Juan-Jose was moved from Marion County Jail April 22 and placed into Coffee Creek Correctional Facility in Wilsonville.
San Juan-Jose was arrested in October after admitting to sexually abusing his niece 16 years earlier. She was 9 or 10 years old at the time of abuse, which reportedly included sexual touching and kissing. The sexual abuse occurred nearly every day for a year in San Juan-Joses home in the 300 block of Cedar Avenue in Gervais, according to the probable cause statement released by the Marion County Correctional Facility.
