Luke 17:2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.
Mark 9:42 And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.
A 76-year-old former Catholic priest who already has served jail time for molesting boys in Maryland was sentenced Tuesday to 20 years in prison in South Carolina for raping boys from a middle school four decades ago. Wayland Yoder Brown wore his priest collar while attacking the boys, then prayed the rosary with them, Solicitor Duffie Stone said.
In South Carolina, Brown faced up to 210 years in prison on the nine counts of criminal sexual conduct with a minor. Stone said he took the plea deal because the 20-year sentence almost guarantees Brown dies in prison and also requires him to talk to investigators about anything he knows from his years with the Diocese of Savannah, Georgia, and other churches.
