Prescott Man Found Guilty of Sexual Exploitation of a Minor


A Yavapai County jury last Friday found a 66-year-old Prescott man guilty of sexual exploitation of a minor. Prescott police were alerted to Stanley Wilburn Smith’s criminal behavior by his girlfriend after she discovered images of child pornography on Smith’s phone. A search of his phone turned up hundreds of sexually explicit images of children, some of whom appeared well under ten years of age.

Smith is scheduled for sentencing on March 25. He faces a minimum of 100 years in prison.
