Man who hid kids guilty of child endangerment 2 arrested in home invasion
YORK -- A south-central Pennsylvania man accused of hiding his five children from the world has been convicted of child endangerment.
A York County judge rendered the verdict against 48-year-old Sinhue Johnson Sr. on Tuesday after a bench trial. Judge Richard K. Renn said he found Johnson guilty because he chose to have his family live in poverty, denying the children proper schooling and housing.
The judge sentenced Johnson to 11½ to 23 months, which amounts to time served. Renn said Johnson had a legal obligation to provide some kind of approved education to his children. Johnson plans to appeal.
Johnson said his children never lived in squalor, as police alleged. He says he and his wife never took them to the doctor, enrolled them in school or got birth certificates because of their religious beliefs.
PHILADELPHIA -- Police say they've arrested two suspects and are still seeking a third after a home invasion in which four Temple University students were bound and robbed at an off-campus apartment earlier this week.
Investigators say they brought the men in for questioning Tuesday, hours after the release of surveillance photos.
