Care giver at Trumbull County facility sentenced

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - A 74-year-old Andover man has been sentenced to serve eight months in prison for inappropriately touching the resident of a Trumbull County care facility.

Donald Church was sentenced on Monday in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court after pleading guilty earlier to gross sexual imposition.

Church must also register as a tier one sex offender and must register his address with authorities once a year for the next fifteen years after he completes his prison sentence.

Church could have been sentenced to as much as 18 months behind bars.

The victim was a female client of Kinsman House, a treatment facility for the developmentally disabled.

Church was indicted in July.
