Chronicles of Hypocrisy #3

I was wrong. I lost my way…

Pastor Michael Blanchard was sentenced to 10 month in prison for fraudulent claims for disability benefits for veterans. He was the pastor at Corner Stone Christian Center in Norfolk, Virginia.

Baptist youth pastor Derrick “Duke” Hampsch was sentenced to 20 years in prison for sexual misconduct with a minor. The victims was 13. Hampsch worked at First Baptist Church in Vincennes, Indiana.

Pastor Ralph Barnett, 74, was sentenced to three years in prison for sexually abusing a preteen girl. It, “Just happened.” Barnett was the pastor at Bethel Presbyterian Church in Peoria, Illinois.

Pastor William Wilson, 79, was sentenced to probation and $570 for attempted moving violation causing death. He ran into a Stephanie Lynn Schabow, 23, killing her in a head on collision. Wilson said, “I will apologize to her in heaven.” He made the list for being a jackass.

Pastor Timothy Bariteau was convicted of having sexual contact with a child. He faces up to 15 years in prison. Barite was a pastor at Morningside Community Church in Brookings, South Dakota.

Pastor Cesar Chin pleaded guilty to failure to report child abuse. He was sentenced to two years probation and he must write letters of apology to his victims. Chin failed to report the sexual abuse of three girls over a period of seven years. The problem is that he actually withheld the knowledge and the court let him off with probation. Chin needs to do time. Chin is the pastor at Church of Jesus, Our Only Hope in Winter Springs, Florida.

Youth pastor Jeffery London was found guilty of charges that he sexually abused a child. He faces 10 years in prison. London was the pastor at Bible Church of God in Fort Lauderdale and dean of students at Eagle Academy charter school in Lauderdale Lakes, Florida.
