Pastor Hezekiah Stallworth sentenced

Sorry – this is a repost. I deleted the original by mistake.

Pastor Hezekiah Stallworth was sentenced to 20 years in prison for molesting young girls. Stallworth is 76, his victims were young girls. A 7-year-old girl made the initial report.

…a 7-year-old female made an outcry she had been “touched inappropriately in a sexual manner” following services on Feb. 21, 2010 at Oak Grove Baptist Church in Elkhart, according to Anderson County Sheriff Greg Taylor.

Two additional victims -- both now adults -- subsequently came forward with similar charges against Stallworth, with the longtime preacher being subsequently charged with the first-degree felony of aggravated sexual assault of a child and the second-degree felony charge of indecency with a child by sexual contact.

Let’s see… Baptist, pastor, retiree, pedophile, and freak. Did I cover it all?
