Oakesdale man sentenced to up to life in prison for child molestation

A 65 year old Oakesdale man may be spending the rest of his life in prison for molesting a young girl.  Clifford Lacy was sentenced to up to life in prison Friday in Whitman County Superior Court.  Judge Dave Frazier made Lacy eligible for parole in just over four years.  Lacy pleaded guilty as charged to first degree child molestation for groping a young girl five years ago.  He was arrested by Whitman County Sheriff’s Deputies in January when the child sex abuse came to light.
