Couple gets 90 days in jail for mistreatment

OREGON CITY — An Oregon couple has been sentenced to 90 days in jail after being convicted of criminal mistreatment for failing to seek medical care for their infant daughter for a growth that could have left her blind in one eye.

Timothy and Rebecca Wyland, of Oregon City, are members of the Followers of Christ Church, which practices faith healing and rejects doctors. They are the fourth and fifth members of the church to be convicted in the past two years of crimes involving medical neglect of children. Another case is pending.

Clackamas County Circuit Judge Jeffrey S. Jones also sentenced the Wylands to three years of probation and required them to provide medical care for their daughter, Alayna, now 18 months old.

The judge staggered their sentences, ordering Timothy Wyland into custody immediately. When he is released, Rebecca Wyland will start her term.

A restitution hearing is set for Aug. 29.
