An Amish man who was charged with sex crimes against his children last year has pleaded guilty.

Webster County assistant prosecutor John Tyrrell says that Johnny Schwartz, 36, Seymour, was charged back in October with two of first-degree child molestation and counts of statutory sodomy.

Today (01-26-10) he was sentenced to two ten year consecutive sentences on the child molestation charges; he also received two seven year sentences on the statutory sodomy charges that will run concurrent to the ten year sentences.

Fannie Schwartz pleaded guilty to charges of endangering the welfare of a child and was placed on five years probation for not reporting the abuse of her daughters. She must also complete 100 hours of community service.

Elders of the Schwartz's church shunned him twice for the abuse of his girls....four of those elders will face a bench trial on March 10 for being mandated reporters who allegedly did not report the crime.

Please help us understand why these sentences are to be served concurrently RATHER than consecutively????????? That minimizes these horrific crimes and further victimizes his daughter and their entire community.
