Black Earth pastor sentenced to two-years in prison for conspiracy to commit child abuse
Ellsworth Wisconsin 126 S. Chestnut St. 54011

BLACK EARTH - Telling his church members they should use wooden rods to spank their infants and toddlers earns a former pastor in Black Earth a two-year prison sentence.

Philip Caminiti was found guilty of eight counts of conspiracy to commit child abuse. He had told members of Aleitheia Bible Church those children were not too young to be hit as a way to teach them to behave. Caminiti told investigators his advice followed biblical teachings.

After he serves his two-year sentence he won't be allowed to have contact with that church or have any leadership role in any church.
