ALBANY, Ore. -- A former Boy Scout leader has been sentenced to more than 20 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to sex abuse charges.

Douglas Young Jr. was arrested in March 2017. Police investigated a complaint, accusing the Lebanon man of inappropriately touching a boy.

Court records made public this week list the initials of 10 victims, some who are now adults. The offenses occurred over 15 years,  ending shortly before his arrest.

The charges included sex abuse, sodomy and attempting to use a child in display of sexually explicit conduct.

Young had been investigated twice before on allegations of sexual abuse.
