Disgraced pastor gets a year in jail

[Source]:

Disgraced Baptist pastor Royden Wood has this morning been sentenced to one year in jail and three years’ probation.

The former church minister was convicted of assault and sexual assault involving church members.

Last week, Wood — the former pastor at the now-defunct Ambassador Baptist Church — seemed unconcerned at the prospect of jail time.

“It was fun. It doesn’t scare me a bit,” he said, his wife Linda by his side.

“I had a good time there,” he said of his time awaiting bail. “I have an intense and passionate desire to help people and I was a tremendous blessing to many in jail. The other inmates were constantly asking me, ‘Why are you so happy?’ It’s easy to be in jail. It’s hard to be out here.”

Wood was convicted in April of nine assaults on three boys at the church’s alternative school in the 1980s, and three sex-related charges involving two female church members who had breasts touched over their clothing. Six more sexual assault charges were laid in July.
