Pastor Evans Bacon convicted

Evans-justice-bacon Self-appointed Bishop Evans Bacon was convicted of sexual battery and the promoting sexual performance of a child. He pleaded guilty.

Bishop Evans Bacon, 60, of New Life Apostolic Tabernacle Church, 342 11th St. N, was sentenced to 364 days in the Pinellas County jail and five years of probation. He will be required to register as a sexual offender. Bacon, whose address is 1019 S Persimmon Ave., Sanford, cannot have unsupervised contact with minors or contact with the victim or her family.

I’m sure the family business can wait a year. New Life Tabernacle Church will get its bishop back after just a year in jail. He molested a 15-year-old girl and gets a slap on the wrist. Is this justice?
