DES MOINES, Iowa — A Des Moines man has been sentenced to no more than four years in prison after striking a deal with prosecutors over allegations he sexually abused children at an in-home day care.

KCCI-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1omQeXB ) 49-year-old David Glenn Smith received the sentence Friday after entering an Alford plea in April to five counts of indecent contact with a child. An Alford plea means defendants don't admit guilt but agree that evidence is strong enough to convict them.

The abuse occurred at a day care operated by Smith's wife. She wasn't charged and police don't believe she was aware of any abuse.

Police learned of the abuse after a child at the day care told a parent.

The day care has been closed.
