Iowa grandfather gets probation in sexual abuse case
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A 61-year-old Iowa grandfather has been sentenced to five years of probation for molesting his 6-year-old granddaughter.
The Des Moines Register reports Dean Hilpipre was sentenced Friday for committing lascivious acts with a child. He pleaded guilty last month as part of a deal with prosecutors.
Judge James McGlynn also ordered Hilpipre to have no contact with his granddaughter for five years, and he will undergo sex-offender treatment. He lives in Alden, Iowa.
The girl’s mother criticized prosecutors for failing to send Hilpipre to prison.
The girl’s family said Hilpipre performed sexual acts on his granddaughter and forced her to perform acts on him in return.
