PRINEVILLE, OR -- A Prineville man caught after nearly three years on the run, will likely spend the rest of his life in prison for sexually abusing a young family acquaintance on at least two occasions, over the course of several years. Stanley Richard Parrish, now 66, was sentenced Tuesday to more than 31 years in prison, with no possibility of early release.


The victim admitted the abuse to her step-sister who shared the information with her parents; they immediately took the information to Prineville Police. Shortly after, the suspect fled to California. A Grand Jury indicted Parrish for multiple counts of sexual abuse, and an arrest warrant was issued in February 2014. 


In August 2016, Prineville PD launched a new phone app and Facebook page, highlighting wanted individuals. Less than a week later, an alert citizen spotted Parrish at a Walmart in Shasta County, CA and called police.

At Tuesday's sentencing, Crook County District Attorney Wade Whiting requested the court impose a 375-month sentence due to the years of ongoing abuse and the defendant's extensive criminal history dating back to 1969. In 2011, he was convicted of attempted sexual abuse of a minor and ordered to register as a sex offender in Deschutes County.
