This Week In Holy Crimes


from Joe.My.God., of course.

West Virginia: Pastor Sandy Martin Cook sentenced to 20 - 60 years in prison for child molestation.
Alabama: Youth Pastor Charles Miller pleads guilty to possession of child pornography, may get 15 years in prison.
Connecticut: Pastor Vernitt Hoheb charged with sexual assault on 16 year-old parishioner.
Massachusetts: Pastor Ana Paula Almeida charged with rape of 13 year-old. Wisconsin: Pastor David J. Fogderud convicted of obstruction of justice in an altercation at a Burger King where he harassed two teen boys and demanded they accompany him to a Christian rock concert.
Rwanda: Father Emmanuel Uwayezu charged with war crimes in massacre of over 60 students at the Catholic school where he was headmaster.

This week's winner:
Florida: Pastor Robert Riddle will go to prison for 15 years for exploitation of the elderly unless he pays back the $90,000 he embezzled from a 91 year-old woman. The woman's family only agreed to the probation deal because they desperately need the money back to keep her in the assisted-living elderly home where she lives. Riddle has resigned from his church in another scandal over the purchase of a $300,000 personal aircraft. In 1988 he was sentenced to five years in prison for defrauding an Alabama church.
