Lewiston man sentenced for sending lewd text messages
LEWISTON (AP) — A former state worker convicted for sending lewd and obscene text messages to four women has been ordered to spend 10 days in jail.

41-year-old Larry D. Dillman of Lewiston was sentenced Thursday on four misdemeanor counts of using a telephone to harass or offend and one count of trespass of privacy.

Dillman, a former employee of the state Department of Health and Welfare, was accused of sending the messages last year. The privacy count relates to a separate incident when he peered over a wall at a woman tanning in a Lewiston salon.

The sentenced imposed by Nez Perce County Magistrate Judge Jeff Payne requires Dillman to serve two, five-day stints in the jail and pay more than $1,300 in fines and court costs.
