Cincinnati Scientologist Pleads To Sexual Imposition

scientology's cincinnati church moves out of state Ben Kasle Back in April, the reported that Ben Kasle, a 21 year old man, was arrested for having sex with a teenager at the Church of Scientology in Downtown Cincinnati. Ben Kasle was charged with two counts of gross sexual imposition. Investigators say he had sex with the girl who is now 14-years-old. Police records indicate the alleged offenses happened at the church on Fourth Street between October 2007 and September 2008. On June 4th, Kasle had his day in court. Of the two counts of Sexual Imposition [2907.06] pending against him, he was found guilty of one and the second was dismissed after pleading nolo contendere (no contest). Sentencing date is not available at this time. In Ohio, this charge is considered an M-3 misdemeanor. Kasle could face up to 60 days in prison and a fine of $500 and would also have to register as a sex offender. In related news,as reported by the Cincinnati Scientology center where Kasle's offense was reported to have occurred, is leaving the state and moving to Florence, KY. setting up in a building formerly owned by the Florence Baptist Church. I wonder if they moved " because it has outgrown its location on West Fourth Street in downtown Cincinnati" or if they are trying to distance themselves from the above incident. None of this has appeared in the local news, so I wouldn't be surprised if a certain church is hoping all this will blow over as long as it's kept hush-hush.
