Former Youth Pastor at Chesapeake Apostolic Church Sentenced to 10-20 Years in Prison in Sexual Abuse Case

WSAZ News3 CHARLESTON, W.Va. - April 16, 2009

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A former preacher from Kanawha County convicted of sexually abusing a teenager will spend 10-20 years in prison.

Timothy Edmonds was arrested back in 2006 for assaulting a 16-year-old girl. He was found guilty of those charges back in January.

Edmonds was sentenced on three counts, including sexual abuse by a person of trust. For each of the three counts, he will serve 10-20 years, but the sentences all run at the same time.

Edmonds was a youth pastor at the Chesapeake Apostolic Church.

Thursday morning Judge Irene Berger told Edmonds his lack of remorse, failure to accept responsibility, and his attempts to manipulate the justice system helped her to make the decision to give him prison time.
