  Jury finds 37-year-old Michael Ray Long guilty of 22 counts of sex abuse-related with two young girls 3 counts of Sodomy, Unlawful Sexual Penetration, and Encouraging Child Sexual Abuse with young girls.  
37-year-old Michael Ray Long from Junction City, was sentenced today after being found guilty in a jury trial on February 5, 2021. Long was charged with 22 counts of sex abuse-related crimes. He was convicted for sexually abusing two young girls when they were eight and twelve years old.

Long was sentenced to 204 years in prison for crimes against two girls: 10 counts of Sex Abuse in the First Degree, 3 counts of Sodomy in the First Degree, 3 counts of Unlawful Sexual Penetration in the First Degree, 5 counts of Encouraging Child Sexual Abuse in the 2nd Degree, and 1 count of Strangulation.

Long was arrested on these crimes in October 2020 after an investigation into reports of inappropriate Facebook conversations with a 12-year-old female. The investigation revealed the second, younger victim who disclosed she had been sexually abused by Long.

Linn County Detectives believe there may be more victims and encourage anyone with information about Michael Ray Long to contact Detective Tracy White at 541-917-6652.
