PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A 64-year-old man has been sentenced to more than 30 years in prison after a sexual assault kit linking him to a 2011 rape emerged from the backlog.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reported Tuesday that Curtis Clint Williams is the first defendant in Multnomah County to be found guilty by jury since police and prosecutors have started working on clearing the backlog of thousands of untested sexual assault kits.

Williams was accused of raping a 19-year-old woman in 2011 after meeting her near a TriMet ticket machine. The woman told police Williams invited her to his apartment where he raped her.

Her sexual assault examination kit was tested in 2011 and the DNA on the kit matched Williams.

Williams is scheduled to go to trial for a second attack later this month.
