LDS John Allen Midgett ” was sentenced to thirty years in state prison for sexually abusing
eight girls between the ages of five and ten in his Mormon Sunday School class, beginning
in 1986.” ‘ ‘
“Midgett was charged with “43 counts of sexually assaulting young girls between the ages
of 5 and 10, was sentenced Friday to 30 years in state prison…. The attacks occurred either
in Mormon churches in Mira Mesa and Rancho Penasquitos or in the girls’ homes. Midgett’s
lawyer, Juliana Humphrey, said Midgett entered the guilty plea in an effort to spare the
children from having to testify in a trial. Charges were filed against Midgett after he
confessed to church leaders to some of his crimes. The church leaders, in turn, went to
police.” “My little daughter was 6 years old when this all started happening to her. She now
is afraid of everything,” the mother said. “We have been through hell. If you can’t trust your
Sunday school teacher, how can you trust anyone else?”
Ex-Sunday school teacher weeps, says: I’m so thankful to you for turning me in. I
was without hope.’ September 12, 1992| DON STANZIANO
