Two men sentenced for child abuse

In two distinct court actions two men were sentenced to life in prison on child molestation charges, said a court official.

According to District attorney Greg Edwards, William Anko Pash, 35, pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated child molestation, one with a 3-year-old boy the other with a 6-year-old boy. He was sentenced to life in prison.

Edwards added that a jury found Aaron Jones, 23, guilty of rape, aggravated child molestation, aggravated sodomy and child molestation Friday evening. Jones was sentenced to three terms life in prison to be served concurrently and 20 years.

“It was a good day to prosecute child molesters,” Edwards said. “It is good to get them off the street for good.”
