PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A 44-year-old man who admitted to killing an assistant weighmaster in Oregon has been sentenced to life in prison with a minimum of 25 years served before he's eligible for parole.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports Dirck White's Tuesday sentence in Clackamas County will be combined with one he is already serving in California, where in 2016 he was ordered to serve over 38 years stemming from a shootout with police in Hollywood.

The shootout happened nine months after the killing of 47-year-old Grady Waxenfelter.

Court records show White also faces rape of a child charges in Pierce County, Washington.

White said in court that he didn't plan to kill Waxenfelter when he pulled White over near Boring in February 2014.

White said he shot him as retaliation for every instance of misconduct by police, prosecutors and corrections officers he's seen over his lifetime.
