An Amish bishop pleaded guilty in Dauphin County court last week to a charge of failure to report child abuse.
Christ M. Stoltzfus, 70, of Elizabethville, entered the plea Thursday before Judge Deborah E. Curcillo and was sentenced to three months probation, according to the Dauphin County District Attorney's Office.
State police launched an investigation in January after a confidential source alleged child sexual abuse in the Amish community.
Officials said a church member told Stoltzfus in 2011 about two cases involving 44-year-old Daniel Ray Fisher, according to previous reports. Stoltzfus reportedly told state police that he'd been told the abuse "wasn't really that bad."
Clergymen are legally required to report child abuse to authorities.
Stoltzfus initially was charged with two counts of failure to report but one of the counts was dismissed at a preliminary hearing June 14, court papers show.
