Warm Springs Man Sentenced For Molestation


WARM SPRINGS, OR -- A federal judge has sentenced a Warm Springs man to 25 years in prison for molesting an 11-year-old girl. According to court documents, the victim told her mother 36-year-old Lawren Slockish touched her inappropriately and attempted to further assault her. The child then told Warm Springs police it was not the first time Slockish had molested her.

Prosecutors say the victim showed great courage in coming forward. "Sexual abuse of children casts a lifelong shadow on the health of the victims," U.S. Attorney Billy Williams said in a statement, "The Warm Springs Multi-Disciplinary Child Abuse Team brings together tribal police and prosecutors, Child Protective Services, the Indian Health Service, and federal law enforcement author ties to collaboratively investigate these cases in a thorough, compassionate manner ensuring justice for these vulnerable victims."
