Habitual sex offender sentenced to life in prison

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A habitual sex offender has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports that 49-year-old Terry E. Iversen received the sentence Friday in Washington County Circuit Court.

Iversen in January pleaded guilty to public indecency after getting caught masturbating on a MAX train in October.

The charge was a felony because of Iversen's extensive past sex-related cases and allowed for the life sentence under an Oregon law aimed at predatory sex offenders.

At the hearing on Friday, a probation officer said Iversen should spend the rest of his life in prison.

Current and retired detectives who investigated cases involving Iversen also testified.

Terry Beach, Iversen's attorney, sought a prison sentence of eight years, four months.
