Pastor of the Week convicted of child sex abuse
for 2nd time
By Dave Greber, News 4 Reporter

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Convicted child molester Roy Harriger has been convicted again, this time in another state and by yet another accuser.

But for the first time, he’s admitting to years of abuse.

Harriger has now been convicted of sexually abusing children within his own family and accused of molesting children associated with his church.

Until he was jailed in April 2015, Harriger continued to preach at Community Fellowship Church in Johnson Creek.

In April 2015, members of Harriger’s family, including his son, reacted to what they and investigators described as sexual abuse of children that goes back 40 years.

But just this week, a judge in northern Pennsylvania sentenced him to two to five years in prison for years of sexual abuse of a young female family member in the 1990s.

2 to 5 years for years of abuse? of his own family? of his congregation? Huh? 

“It’s the first time in this whole mess over all these years is he’s actually admitted to the guilt. I don’t like the outcome of what happened,” George Harriger said. “It gave the victim some relief, but the other victims didn’t get that chance. They never got that chance. But for him to admit what he did, that’s huge.”

George Harriger said it’s unfortunate that the Pennsylvania judge ordered his father’s sentenced to be served at the same time as the one he’s currently serving in New York.

He was sentenced to serve 15 years in 2015, but he won’t be getting any time added to his sentence, despite the additional conviction.

Good grief! So those victims were basically 'freebees' for the Pastor of the Week.

Abilene man indicted in case of child sexual abuse
Timothy Chipp , Abilene Reporter-News

A Taylor County grand jury on Thursday indicted an Abilene man suspected of touching a child younger than 6 years old inappropriately while the girl was staying with her grandmother in April.

Gregory Charles Copher, 60, was indicted on two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and one count each of indecency with a child by contact and indecency with a child by exposure.

According to court documents, Copher was living with the child's maternal grandmother when the girl and her 8-year-old brother came to stay with them in the 2700 block of Grape Street from April 6-12 while the children's parents were on vacation.

After the parents returned, according to the documents, the child told her mother that she had a secret with Copher that she couldn't tell. Eventually, the mother said, the child told her that she and the suspect had played with each other's "penny and panny," according to the documents.

The mother said those are the words the child uses to describe genitals of boys and girls, according to the court papers.

The child underwent a forensic interview, the documents said, and told police that she was touched by the suspect on her private area more than one time and that it hurt when he touched inside her private area.

She said he stopped when she said it hurt and apologized, the documents said.

The victim also told police the suspect licked her private area and did so after she told him not to do it, according to the documents.

Copher originally was held on $50,000 bond, according to records at the Taylor County Jail.

Also indicted Thursday was Nicholas Mikail Kohanowski, 49, of Abilene, on one count of possession of child pornography

According to court documents, Kohanowski was contacted while leaving his residence on Ponderosa Circle by police executing a search warrant on Sept. 28.

Police reported that several images of children engaged in various lewd and sexual situations were recovered from seized electronic devices, according to the documents.

Kohanowski allegedly confessed to police that he had downloaded the images and was in counseling for an addiction.

Kohanowski initially was held on $10,000 bond, according to records at the Taylor County Jail.
