Rio Linda Pastor Sentenced 158 Years To Life For Sexual Assaults

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A Rio Linda pastor convicted of sexually assaulting young girls in his care was sentenced Friday to 158 years to life in prison.

District Attorney Jan Scully announced the sentence handed down to Tom Daniels by Sacramento Superior Court Judge Trena H. Burger-Plavan.

In December, Daniels, 49, was convicted by jury of 11 counts of molestation. Daniels molested five different girls between December 2002 and August 2007, Scully said.

One child was at his Citrus Heights house for daycare and the other four were there for respite care. The ages of the girls ranged from 5 to 8 years old at the time of the assaults, Scully said.

Daniels was a pastor at Rio Linda Baptist Church.

    He doesn’t deserve three hots and a cot. The death penality should be carried out in this stupid state, and not 30 years later. He should be carried by six, not judged by twelve. ASAP

    They need to REALLY start executing perverts like this schmuck, then we wouldn’t have the overcrowding, but I know, they turn a deaf ear, as always.

    I really hope this guy gets torchered in prison. He deserves the worst treatment there is.

    This guy gets 158 years, and rightfully so but Judge HORTON ARRESTED for CHILD MOLESTATION (family law court) is a misdemeanor(???).

    How does that work?
    Judge Horton will be arraigned Monday, Mar. 5, 2012
    Sacramento County Courthouse (Downtown Courthouse) 720 Ninth St., Sacramento, CA 95814
    -8:30 AM Department 03 Downtown Courthouse

      because he is a judge. Duh.
      Legal system, not justice system.
