A sad story out of my home town of Cincinnati, Ohio –a pastor was convicted of molesting a teen girl. A crowd of about 50 congregation members and relatives packed a Butler County courtroom and spilled out into the hallway as the pastor of a Hamilton church was sent to prison for 15 months for molesting a Fairfield teen.
The Rev. Bruce Curtis, 54, of Community Friendship Church was convicted last month of attempted sexual battery and sexual imposition involving the 17-year-old girl that he was counseling.
