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.
