68-Year-Old Convicted for Molesting Girls in Church

A Sheffield Lake, Ohio, man, called "the Candy Man," has been convicted of molesting young girls from church. The 68-year-old man had molested girls as far back as 34 years ago.

The judge sentenced Robert Owens for four years in prison, and victims are angry that such as short sentence was given. They said the sentence was insensitive, considering the turmoil that they have gone through all of their lives.

Owens will be 72 years old when he is released from jail.
