WAYNESBURG, Pa. (AP) - A former member of a southwestern Pennsylvania county’s Children and Youth Services advisory board must spend 10 to 20 years in prison for molesting a boy in his care.

Fifty-seven-year-old John Robert Lohr was sentenced Friday by a judge in Greene County, where he had previously pleaded guilty to charges including involuntary deviate sexual intercourse.

The (Washington) Observer-Reporter (http://bit.ly/1qEk5uB ) says Lohr tried to commit suicide in August when he was confronted by family members about abusing the boy who was 4 when he was placed in Lohr’s care, and 9 when the four-year pattern of abuse began in 2009.

A day after Lohr was confronted, he was found unconscious in his van with a hose running from its exhaust pipe to the interior. He was arrested at a hospital 10 days later.
