Woman gets prison for sexual battery

| January 14, 2023 1:00 AM

A woman convicted of sexually abusing a child will spend up to a decade in prison.

Tiffany L. Wolf, 34, of Post Falls, was convicted last October of injury to a child — a felony — and sexual battery, a misdemeanor. The charges stem from 2019, when Wolf reportedly engaged in sexual contact with a 12-year-old child.

Judge Barbara Duggan sentenced Wolf this week to 10 years in prison, the maximum penalty for felony injury to a child, with two years fixed. That means Wolf will be eligible for parole in two years.

Kootenai County Prosecutor Stanley Mortensen praised the police who investigated the crime, as well as Rebecca Perez, the attorney who prosecuted the case.

Mortensen also expressed appreciation for the victim who spoke up about the abuse.

“The Kootenai County Prosecutor’s Office supports victims of crime, particularly children who have been abused by the hands of a trusted adult,” he said. “This type of conduct is among the worst in society and we appreciate all who work to protect children.”
