MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) -- A man who formerly worked as a deportation officer with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in Southern Oregon was sentenced to 25 years in prison for sexually abusing a child for more than nine years.

The Mail Tribune reports 56-year-old Blake Northway was sentenced Wednesday in Jackson County Circuit Court after admitting to sexually abusing an underage female family member between March 2009 and September 2018.

The Jackson County District Attorney's Office says Northway was arrested last fall following a Medford police and Oregon State Police investigation.

Northway had been assigned to ICE's Medford office but was placed on leave after his arrest Sept. 13. None of the charges or convictions stemmed from Northway's ICE duties.
