KINGFISHER — A former Hennessey police officer will serve 40 years in prison and five years probation after pleading guilty to a single count of child sexual abuse.
Patrick Clay Stackhouse, 29, also was ordered by District Judge Paul Woodward to pay a $500 fine, $100 to the victims compensation fund and court and jail costs during his sentencing this morning in Kingfisher County District Court.
Stackhouse pleaded guilty Jan. 11 to the sexual abuse of a girl that began when she was 8 years old and lasted for about two years.
Assistant District Attorney Bryan Slabotsky, who asked for a life sentence, said he had “no complaints” with the sentence.
He wished to thank Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation agents for their work on the case.
“OSBI did an excellent job,” Slabotsky said.
Because of the nature of the crime, Stackhouse must serve 85 percent of his sentence before being considered for parole or other deferments. Following his release, Stackhouse must comply with state mandated sex offender registration guidelines.
