Former Ohio chaplain sentenced for having sex with girls

The Associated Press

MEDINA, Ohio - A judge yesterday sentenced a former police chaplain in northeast Ohio's Medina to 15 years in prison for having sex with four girls since 2002.

Leonard Robertson had pleaded guilty in April to 54 counts of sexual battery, two counts of gross sexual imposition and one count of attempted gross sexual imposition.

The Medina Police Department learned of the allegations in November and dismissed Robertson from his position as chaplain, a volunteer post he held for about seven months.

Robertson will have to register as a sexual predator after his release. He told the judge that he now knows he needs help.
