Victory Christian Sex Abuse Case Continues for Three Employees
Paul Willemstein, Anna George and Harold "Frank" Sullivan appeared in court Wednesday. John and Charica Daugherty are set for appearances later this month.
A judge has delayed court hearings for 3 of 5 employees of a Tulsa megachurch charged with waiting two weeks to report the rape of a 13-year-old girl on church grounds.
Victory Christian Center employees Paul Willemstein, Anna George and Harold "Frank" Sullivan each face one misdemeanor count of failing to report the abuse in a timely manner. They were due in court Wednesday morning, but a judge pushed their hearings to Feb. 13.
Separate hearings are scheduled next week for John and Charica Daugherty - the son and daughter-in-law of the co-founder and head pastor at the 17,000-member church. The couple faces the same charges of failing to report abuse.
Former church employee Chris Denman pleaded guilty to raping the 13-year-old and was sentenced to 55 years in prison.
