PORTLAND, Ore. – A former soccer coach was sentenced to 20 years in prison Friday for sex abuse charges and for taking sexually explicit photographs of teenagers.

Luis Trybom, 39, appeared in court for sentencing after he pleaded “no contest” to three counts of using a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct, four counts of second-degree abuse, and one count of third-degree sex abuse in July.

Trybom only pleaded "no contest" to some of the total charges from each of his two arrests, and the plea change in July was part of an offer to "resolve his two cases," The Multnomah County District Attorney's Office said.

Since Trybom has already served one year in jail, he still needs to serve 19 years in prison.

In court Friday, he apologized to his many victims.

KATU News was first to report Trybom’s June 28, 2017 arrest. He was accused of taking nude and explicit photos of a 17-year-old girl.

Since then, six more victims - including another minor - came forward with accusations against him.

Authorities said none of the alleged victims were related to Trybom's work as director of the Portland Soccer Academy, a youth sports organization that involved several teenage girls.
