Ex-Okla. Minister Given 20 Years For Raping Girls

FAIRVIEW, Okla. (AP) - A former Fairview church pastor accused of sexually assaulting several young girls has been given a 20-year prison term.

The Enid News and Eagle reported in Wednesday's editions that Tommy Pitts was sentenced to 20 years each on four counts of lewd molestation; 15 years for rape by instrumentation and five years each on charges of forcible oral sodomy and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. All are tobe served concurrently.

Pitts' wife called Major County Sheriff's deputies and told them her husband wanted to commit suicide after she confronted him about the rape allegations. Deputies received another call that Pitts' vehicle had collided with a semi.

Authorities say Pitts told them he intentionally hit the truck, and should be jailed because he had molested the girls.
