LOL - never let your teen girl anywhere near some male who is offering "counseling" - also, interactions between teen girls and adult males should be in a group setting with more than one adult present. Common sense.

6 years, thats it? Lets not forget he will probably get paroled after 2 years!He will just get out and do it again at another church with another under aged minor! Our courts system is a complete joke! When are they going to quit messing around with people?

there's just as many sinners in the church as in the corner bar. The primary difference is, the church people will deny, lie, and sneak while the bar patrons freely admit their sin.

Look - its never mentioned if the girl allowed it or not. With not using the term "rape" she may have accepted it and wanted the relationship. In Hilliard where I am at, these 16 year olds dress and act way older than their age. It could have been consensual between both parties. And I do not want to hear anyone debate that she is to young to know better.
At age 16, the years given to this guy is acceptable. Both parties are at fault!

If I had five bucks for every time some Bible-thumper committed some sexual crime, or f***ed around on his wife, I could wipe out our state's budget deficit. But it's the gays who are evil.

I'm assuming you typed that last sentence in jest. I'm not gay,but I don't see gay people hiding behind the office of the church to take advantage of young people.

This is what happens when a prosecutor does their job and does not take the easy way out with a plea agreement. Kudos to the prosecutor. It is a shame that Franklin, Delaware, Licking and Knox counties do not have prosecutors who want to do their jobs and take the easy way out with plea agreements.

Matthew 19:14, Mark 10:14, Luke 18:16. The exact same statement made three times, by the Person that this idiot (Mr. Monk) claimed to worship.There is absolutely no defense for Monk's actions.

Another kid-fondling priestly pervert....endemic in Christianity, you don't have to be a Catholic to go for the kiddies, apparently.

It's a sick religion. Seriously.

Too many underage sex cases in Licking County to do that, they'd be backed up for years if they didn't offer pleas, sadly. Too many perverts out there.

My ex is an ordained minister, works in a long term care facility on Kimberly Parkway on the Eastside and he cheated on me for two years with an ex Nurse from the facility he works for. You can't trust any type of Bible-Thumper, they hide behind the cloth in order to commit crimes and they say God is a forgiving God...he will forgive me for my sins.....BS!!!!!! I would rather hang with the gays and bar drunks, at least they are upfront about who they are!!!!

monk did wrong, I agree. but your daughter is no angel in this case... she participated just as willing. she must have done something to get his attention because your daughter is not one bit attractive. don't put all the blame on monk because your daughter was messed up way before this. do you ever read her facebook comments, dad?? she needs professional help. if this situation bothered her so bad then why did she still attend the church afterwards? why did she back for round two? your daughter is not a victim.
Justice punishes the guilty....creeps like you blame the victim. Are you a registered sex offender?

Turns out he wasn't a Monk, after all! This sort of thing happens all the time in Licking County, you know.

This case was prosecuted in Licking County. They got it as close to right as they could on this one.

Oh so his age matters or just the fact that is he over 18 years of age and she isnt? Pretty sure the law does not include what your age is if its over 18 years.
Point being is that she was not forced and at age 16 can make smart choices as well. No one on here knows who initiated what.

What are we missing here? Yesterday in the Dispatch we read about a teacher here in Central Ohio who had sex with one of his students, and he got 90 days in jail, and now today we read this guy pretty much did the same thing and he gets 6 years? What is wrong in Ohio? Is our system that screwed up?
