Sioux Center Man Faces Up To Life In Prison After Admitting To Sex Acts With Children

Date posted - August 13, 2013

Jail Door2Sioux Center, Iowa — A Sioux Center man is behind bars and will stay there for at least 17 and a half years, and possibly up to the rest of his life after he pled guilty to committing sex acts with children.

Sioux County Attorney Coleman McAllister reports that 33-year-old Philip Eddie Stacy of Sioux Center, pled guilty and has been sentenced for the crimes of Sexual Abuse in the Second Degree, a Class B Felony, and Lascivious Acts with a Child, a Class C Felony.

McAllister says that on November 23, 2012, Stacy’s wife discovered sexually explicit text messages he had sent to a 13-year-old girl as well as nude photos of the same 13-year-old girl on his cell phone. The Sioux Center Police were called to investigate and the girl was interviewed. The girl advised police that Stacy had repeatedly sexually abused her on as many as 100 occasions during the preceding 18 months, beginning when she was 11 years old.

Stacy was arrested that day and charged with Sexual Abuse in the Second Degree.

After his arrest, another 13-year-old girl who was unrelated to the first victim came forward and contacted the Sioux Center Police to report that Stacy had fondled her in 2011 when she was 11 years old. Stacy was arrested again on January 2, 2013, and charged with Lascivious Contact with a Child.

This week, Stacy pled guilty to both offenses, and he was sentenced to 25 years in prison and was immediately taken into custody by the Sioux County Sheriff. Stacy will be required to serve 70 percent of his sentence, or 17 and a half years, before he is eligible for parole. Stacy was further sentenced to a special sentence committing him into the custody of the Director of the Iowa Department of Corrections for the rest of his life, with eligibility for parole after he’s completed the initial sentence. The Court also ordered that upon any release from prison, Stacy must register as a sex offender.

    So this piece of trash was sentenced to 25 years and will serve 70% or 17.5 years then be eligible for parole? I don’t give a rip if he has to wear a flashing neon sign around his neck that says “Sex Offender” he should never see the light of day. Those girls have a life sentence courtesy of him and his despicable acts. They will live with this trauma and relive this trauma forever. They will never get parole and will be registered in their souls as “victims” forever. I would gladly pay any extra taxes it takes to keep someone like this in prison until the day he died.

      Amen! Why are these people allowed to hurt our childeren and walk free some day? I don’t care what anyone was says they should be put to death or send them all out to some remote island. Why should our tax dollars pay for them. You mess with a kid your done! There should be NO second chance!

      This is pretty sad that this guy will be eligible for parole after 17 1/2 years. I live by Mason City and think back to how big the Kathylyn Shepard disappearance was just a month or so ago and the guy that they believe took her and another girl was a registered sex offender that had served time in prison and was released. Kathylyn was found dead. Who is to say that this guy could be a repeat offender even after he is out of prison and what does the sex offender registry do other than alert people that they have one in their community. Those sex offenders know they aren’t supposed to be in certain areas, but that doesn’t stop them. I’m sorry but this man should never be eligible for parole and I agree that I would pay extra taxes to keep someone like this behind bars and keep my children safe.

    I find it a bit disconcerting that there are 2 dislikes to these comments!

    What they don’t tell us is this man has a military background…I’m glad he got the time he did, but for God’s sake throw the BOOK at this sick-o!

    I would like to suggest that everyone, and this includes me, that believes this man shouldn’t ever see the light of day, remember this when you go and vote. The liberals have been pushing their agenda for years. Their social agenda will soon be complaining that this very act shouldn’t be illegal, that you should be able to marry your dog, or cat, or cow! That Christianity is old and fake! That what ever makes you feel good should be okay! If you don’t think that these United States have sunk into the cesspool of immoral activity, this is just another example. You can’t kill 56 million babies, allow unnatural marriage, think that animals are more important than humans, some how believe that man can control global warming and not God, and not believe that this Great Country hasn’t fallen into the cesspool of life, you are definitely a liberal. Just remember, when you VOTE, your vote dictates the direction of this country.

    The other part they dont tell you is that he was an over the road truck driver as well and some of these things happened in his truck… What if there are others else where??!

  6. BB_Mom_Sheldon says:

    I agree some mandatory sentences should be in place for child molestors but I hate to disappoint you HappyTimes, even liberals don’t want children molested! This is something to contact all those who could possibly change the laws and sentencing regulations by a matter of moral conscience.
