PORTLAND (AP) — A Portland, Ore., truck driver has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for raping an 8-year-old girl repeatedly during a cross-country trip.

Alexander Lukashov Jr. was convicted of aggravated sexual abuse after a five-day trial last July. Testimony revealed that after some of the attacks, the 210-pound trucker gave his victim presents, including a teddy bear.
