CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire jury has found a man guilty of forcibly raping his children’s 15-year-old babysitter nearly 14 years ago.

The case involving 52-year-old Ernest Willis of Gilford has garnered national attention because the fundamentalist Baptist church he and the girl both belonged to made her apologize to the congregation. The pastor then helped shipped the girl out-of-state to live with a Baptist couple she didn’t know and put her baby up for adoption. Concord police did not locate her until last year.

Before trial, Willis pleaded guilty to one count of statutory rape but denied he forcibly raped the girl on two occasions.
