LAS VEGAS (AP) — A former Las Vegas-area church pastor has been sentenced to at least 60 years in state prison for sexually assaulting three young girls in his congregation before fleeing to Mexico.

A judge sentenced Otis Holland on Wednesday to 15 life terms. He will serve at least 60 years before becoming eligible for parole.

Holland was known to his United Faith Church congregation as “Reverend Otis” and became a fugitive after he fled to Mexico following his initial arrest in December 2010.

Holland was convicted in January of child sexual assault and lewdness, conspiracy to destroy evidence and bribing a witness.

Defense lawyer John Parris says Holland will appeal his conviction and the sentence.

Holland faces similar charges in a separate case in a neighboring city involving five other alleged victims.

    Maybe him and Eddie Long can be pen-pals.
    Sounds like the same situation here except Eddie Long was into boys. Devil in sheep’s clothing at its best.
    Keep our children close people, stop trusting everyone!

    • When HIV/AIDS first became well-known in the USA, during the early 1980s, it was already too late to save those who had become infected with HIV during the 1960s and 1970s. Even our best current and most expensive treatments do NOT prolong lifespan of those infected with HIV, and our prevention efforts have failed miserably to stop new HIV infections. The average lifespan of those infected with HIV today is about the same as it was when the team of Harvard researchers led by Myron Essex and Matthew Alan Gonda studied “slim disease” in the Congo. “Slim disease” turned out to be HIV-1, the most virulent form of HIV. In their article published in the scientific Journal Nature in the mid-80s, Gonda and Essex estimated the average lifespan after HIV infection at about 12 years, with NO medical treatment or drugs. If you ask the US Centers for Disease Control the average lifespan of someone newly-infected with HIV-1, you will be surprised to learn the answer.
