Dallas Smith, 42, of Maricopa, received the maximum sentence for committing sexual acts on two girls.
Pinal County Superior Court Judge Joseph Georgini gave Smith 24 years in the Department of Corrections. Georgini also sentenced him to a lifetime of probation and ordered him to register as a sex offender upon his release from prison.
Smith sexually assaulted an 8-year-old girl and a 10-year-old girl on a number of occasions between 2011 and 2013. In June 2015, the defendant pled guilty to the charges of molestation of a child, a Class 2 felony, dangerous crimes against children, a Class 3 felony, and to two counts of attempted sexual conduct with a minor, also Class 3 felonies.
“Despite the fact this defendant received the maximum penalty, the harm caused to these young girls may last much longer,” Pinal County Attorney Lando Voyles said. “Knowing that, I promise our Pinal families to continue fighting for maximum penalties when the facts support such penalties. Thank you to Judge Georgini for recognizing this as one of those cases.”
