Dauphin County, PA - An Amish bishop pleaded guilty in Dauphin County court last week to a charge of failure to report child abuse.
Christ M. Stoltzfus, 70, of Elizabethville, entered the plea Thursday before Judge Deborah E. Curcillo and was sentenced to three months probation, according to the Dauphin County District Attorney's Office.
State police launched an investigation in January after a confidential source alleged child sexual abuse in the Amish community.
