Former pastor sentenced for indecency with a child

[Source] August 21, 2008:

A former Longview preacher who pleaded guilty in July to indecency with a child was sentenced Thursday to three 20-year prison terms to be served at the same time.

Charles Thomas Hogland, 59, served as a pastor at churches in several states and throughout Texas for about 40 years. He was the pastor of Greggton Church of Christ when he was arrested in 2007 and accussed of inappropriately touching a relative who was 10 years old at the time. The church has since closed down.

The sentence was determined by Judge David Brabham because Hogland waived his right to a jury trial. Twenty years in prison was the maximum sentence for the charge.
