Update on the pastor Otis Jetter molestation case

Baptist pastor Otis B. Jetter, profiled here, was sentenced to 40 years in prison. Jetter, who is 70, was the pastor at Pilgrim Chapel Missionary Baptist Church in Indianapolis.

Jetter was convicted by a jury last December of molesting a child who, at the time of the first molestation, was 12 years old. The accuser, now in his 30s, came forward in 2012, telling police Jetter began molesting him in the mid-'90s.

The man said Jetter often picked him up for church or dropped him off at home afterward.

A probable cause affidavit said the accuser told investigators that in November of 1994, Jetter picked him up and then parked near Indianapolis International Airport, forcing the boy to perform a sexual act on him.

Jetter will die in prison. I say good riddance.
