Pastor Sentenced For Sexually Abusing Daughter


ALBANY, Ore. -- A former Albany pastor has been sentenced to nearly nine years in prison for sexually abusing his 11-year-old daughter.

Timothy Sullivan was found guilty last month of two counts of first-degree sexual assault. He has repeatedly denied the allegations.

Several members of his family and supporters from his congregation attended the six-day trial, in which he took the stand in his own defense.
