1 07-13-87 03:34 ppd krishna states MOUNDSVILLE, W.Va. (UPI) _ A 20-year-old Hare Krisha devotee who pleaded guilty to two counts of third-degree sexual assault was sentenced Monday to a minimum of six months in a youth center. Frederick DiFrancisco was sentenced by Marshall County Circuit Court Judge Steven Narick in Moundsville. The judge ordered the defendant to serve six months to two years at the Anthony Center in Greenbrier County. Narick said both the prosecutor and probation officer recommended DiFrancisco be sentenced to the center instead of prison because of his age. DiFrancisco and fellow Krishna devotee Gary Gardner, who both taught at the Krishna school in Marshall County, were accused of sexual assault. The charges stemmed from a complaint made by a former devotee who said her son was molested at the school from 1981 until 1986. Gardner was the headmaster while DiFrancisco was a teacher's aide.
