PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A 59-year-old man has been sentenced to life in prison for drugging and raping a homeless woman at a Portland motel in 2013.

Portland Police Bureau says Kevin Levi Scott was sentenced Friday to life without parole after a conviction in September of first-degree rape and first-degree sodomy.

Police say Scott lured into his room a 51-year-old woman who was suffering from an alcohol addiction and looking for a place to sleep.

Scott has a criminal history that includes convictions in 1978 in Multnomah County in 2 separate sexual abuse cases.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports he was previously convicted of first-degree sex abuse for tying up a 19-year-old female acquaintance, beating her and sexually assaulting her.

He also has a first-degree rape conviction for the sexual assault of a 17-year-old girl.
