Vancouver man sentenced to 35 years for child rape
Michael Scott Norris, 46, of Vancouver, was convicted in July of child rape and molestation.
The Columbian reported that Norris was a volunteer pastor and counselor at Open Bible Church in Portland, Ore., when he was arrested in 2006.
The case was delayed by a dispute over evidence and a separate federal prosecution of Norris for producing child pornography. He received a 25-year child pornography sentence that will be served at the same time as his state sentence for rape.
