Prison time for man who sexually abused 102-year-old woman in Spirit Lake

A North Idaho man was sentenced Monday to 30 to 75 years in prison for sexually abusing a 102-year-old woman last year. Phillip Ray Smalley, 50, was sentenced in 1st District Court. A jury found him guilty March 11 of three sex offenses involving the elderly woman between July and August. Smalley was working at the Rose Terrace assisted living facility in Spirit Lake, where the victim lived. District Judge Lansing Haynes sentenced Smalley to 10 years fixed plus 15 years indeterminate for each of the three convictions, with the terms to be served concurrently and with credit for 254 days he has served in jail. At the minimum he will spend a little over nine years in prison. SR
