Window Rock Man Sentenced to 15 Years Prison for Abusive Sexual Contact

     PHOENIX – Yesterday, Larondo James Stash, 39, of Window Rock, Ariz., was sentenced by U.S. District Judge David G. Campbell to 15 years’ imprisonment, to be followed by a lifetime term of supervised release with sex offender registration, treatment, and testing.  Stash had previously pleaded guilty to abusive sexual contact of a child.

     The investigation in this case was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  The prosecution was handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney William G. Voit, District of Arizona, Phoenix.
