Family Of Tulsa Megachurch Leader Plead No Contest

Posted: Updated:

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Two employees of a Tulsa megachurch accused of waiting two weeks before reporting the rape of a 13-year-old girl on ministry property last summer have pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge.

Victory Christian Center's John and Charica Daugherty pleaded no contest Friday to failing to promptly to report child abuse. The Daughertys are the son and daughter-in-law of the Tulsa church's senior pastor.

Both received a 5-year deferred sentence and no jail time. They were also ordered to visit at least 20 organizations that work with children to talk with employees about promptly reporting abuse.

3 of the Daughertys' co-workers pleaded no contest Monday to the same charges. Paul Willemstein and Anna George were sentenced to 30 days in jail. Harold "Frank" Sullivan was given a 1-year suspended sentence.
