Pastor Timothy Parker will spend the next 20 years in prison.
The Rev. Timothy Parker appeared at the Fayette County Courthouse in West Union today. Earlier, Parker pleaded guilty to two counts of third-degree sexual abuse, which are class C felonies.
Parker molested a female relative. He was the pastor at St. Peter Lutheran Church in Westgate. There were no insane congregants claiming him as a good Christian and that he was persecuted by hostile authorities. Parker committed his crime and then folded under the pressure of more charges and all without support. But lets remember – the victim was 12-years-old. 20 years in prison is a long stretch for a child molester.
