Iowan gets prison in sex case involving girls

ORANGE CITY, Iowa (AP) — A 33-year-old northwest Iowa man has been given 25 years in prison for sexual contact with two 11-year-old girls.

Sioux County Attorney Coleman McAllister says Philip Stacy, of Sioux Center, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to sex abuse and to lascivious acts with a child. Both are felonies.

McAllister says the case arose in November 2012 when Stacy's wife found on his cellphone sexually explicit text messages he'd sent and nude photos of the girl. The girl later told investigators that Stacy had sexually abused her dozens of times in the previous 18 months, starting when she was 11.

McAllister says that after Stacy was arrested, another 13-year-old contacted police and reported that Stacy fondled her in 2011, when she was 11.
