An Oregon man helping out a family who had nowhere to go will spend the next 17 years behind bars after recording himself spanking a bare-bottomed, 9-year-old girl.

Lucas Ebert was sentenced on Jan. 7 for child sex crimes and elder financial abuse.

Ebert had previously been convicted for posing as a doctor and writing bad checks, reported The Oregonian.

The young girl, who was not identified, reported that Ebert also kissed her on the lips and pressed his body against her from behind. She also claimed he attempted to force his way into a bathroom while she was showering, according to an affidavit.

The girl, her mother and siblings moved in with Ebert after the girl’s father was sentenced to 30 days in jail in May 2017, investigators say. The girl’s mom, also not identified due to the girl’s age, told cops Ebert had become chummy with the girl’s father several months earlier. She added he had an avuncular presence in the girl’s life and flaunted plenty of cash.

Ebert’s defense attorney, Drake Durham, said state law gave the prosecution too much leverage to negotiate such a lengthy sentence. But the law requires a mandatory minimum 25 years in prison for Ebert’s two spanking videos, which is defined as “using a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct” — basically, child pornography because nudity is involved.

“Seventeen years is pretty harsh for the conduct,” griped Durham. “People who killed other people serve sometimes less than that. Strangers who rape and hold knives and guns to people’s throats sometimes get less than 17 years. So 17 years for spanking a girl’s bottom seems completely unjustified.”
