A retired state trooper was sentenced to at least 60 days in prison Monday for indecently assaulting a Dorchester woman, the Suffolk district attorney’s office said. Suffolk Superior Court Judge Christine McEvoy sentenced Thomas Parker, 72, to 2½ years in a house of correction, with 60 days to serve and the remainder suspended for two years, District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office said. Prosecutors said Parker, who was convicted Friday, assaulted the 58-year-old woman in her car after she reluctantly agreed to give him a ride home from Boston Municipal Court in Dorchester on Oct. 12, 2010.
