Mega church pastor’s children plead no contest in child sex abuse case

Tulsa victory church couple

TULSA, Okla. – The son and daughter-in-law of a mega church pastor in Tulsa have pleaded “no contest” to charges against them.

This stems from an incident last year at Victory Christian Church in Tulsa.

A 13-year old girl reported being raped on ministry property by a church worker.

John and Charica Daugherty were charged with failing to promptly report child sexual abuse.

Thursday they pleaded no contest to the misdemeanor charge.

They face a five-year deferred sentence with probation and a fine.

The judge also ordered the couple to develop a safety plan to prevent abuse from ever happening again at the church.
