A local court case that raised both concern and anger came to a conclusion on Wednesday when Benjamin R. Boysel, 34, was sentenced to 12 years in prison on four counts of Sexual Battery. Boysel, now living in Medina, Ohio, was formerly employed as the youth pastor at Trinity United Methodist Church in Van Wert. He had originally been indicted for sexual acts with four females under the age of 18 years-old from January 1, 2006 to November 18, 2009 with a trial date set for May 17 of this year. Boysel changed his plea to guilty at his final pre-trial hearing on May 10, setting up Wednesday's sentencing.
