Kelsey Patrick McCune's twisted journey through the legal system ended Tuesday when he was sentenced to more than eight years in prison for having sex with a 13-year-old Oregon City girl he kidnapped last year.

But it was clear that the relationship between McCune and the girl was deep and complicated. Defense attorney Stephen R. Kelly said the two still had strong feelings for one another, and prosecutor Rusty Amos said the girl was "conflicted" over the criminal proceedings.

Both McCune and the girl were crying when Clackamas County Circuit Judge Kathie F. Steele sentenced McCune to eight years, four months in prison, followed by nearly four years of post-prison supervision. He also must register as a sex offender.

"I may well believe that you really cared for this young lady," Steele said. "But she is a young girl. That's not how you treat young girls. Do you understand that Mr. McCune?"

Before sentencing, McCune pleaded guilty to second-degree kidnapping, second-degree rape and second-degree sodomy. Additional charges were dropped in a plea agreement negotiated by Amos and Kelly. The plea agreement became possible when McCune dropped a plan to use an insanity defense, though he has a history of mental issues.

McCune was arrested in December 2013 after an exhaustive five-day manhunt around the edges of Oregon City. The girl's parents reported her missing after the two disappeared, along with camping equipment. Sheriff's deputies found them in a nearby wooded area at the north end of the Country Village Mobile Home Park, where the girl lives with her family.

The girl's parents, who declined to comment Tuesday, told deputies that McCune was a family friend who was staying with them through Thanksgiving weekend. They said he was a bright fellow who did information-technology jobs on a freelance basis.

In court, Amos said a mental-health exam at the Oregon State Hospital showed that McCune suffered from personality disorder, obsessive compulsions, pedophilia and "eccentric and somewhat delusional behavior."

"All that said, he could understand the nature of his actions," Amos said.

Amos said the girl had problems with her family, especially with her father, and that McCune had become a trusted "confidant." He said they conspired together to run away.

Kelly said the relationship between McCune and the girl was "not as manipulative as the state would have you believe.

"She was living in a horrible situation and wanted to leave," Kelly said. "They had a really great friendship and cared for one another. I know that sounds odd, given their differences in ages."

For his part, McCune apologized to the court. Speaking softly into his long gray beard, he said he took responsibility for his actions and said he wished he could undo the events.

"I've felt a lot of remorse since this happened," he said.
