"Jurors on Monday convicted the leader of an apocalyptic northeastern New Mexico sect of one count of criminal sexual contact of a minor and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Wayne Bent, the self-described Messiah and leader of The Lord Our Righteousness Church, faced two counts each of criminal sexual contact of a minor and contributing to the delinquency of a minor in allegations involving 14- and 16-year old sisters in July and August 2006.
Bent, 67, testified last week he placed his hand on the sternums, but not the breasts, of the teenagers as they lay naked with him in separate incidents. He said he was careful that the spiritual healing exercises with the sisters not take a sexual turn.
An ex-member of the church said in May that Bent 'said God told him that he was supposed to sleep with seven virgins.'
...Bent, who calls himself Michael Travesser, could face a dozen years in prison for the three convictions."
