Sexual Abuse Case
A 32-year-old man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for having inappropriate sexual contact with a child under the age of 12. The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Minnesota said Joseph Valerian Parshall was sentenced on Monday.
The awarding of damages ends a nine-year ordeal for Samantha Beach, who claimed that former pastor Donald Budd had inappropriate sexual contact with her at a church in Winona.
Joseph Valerian Parshall was indicted with two counts of aggravated sexual abuse against a child under the age of 12.
