Convicted Pastor Apparently Leaves State without Permission
KENNEWICK, Wash.- Prosecutors say a local pastor convicted of killing a young girl has been illegally living out of the state as he awaits his appeal.
Former Kennewick Pastor Randall Foos was convicted in November 2006 of accidentally running over a 19-year-old girl.
He was sentenced to more than a year in jail, but a judge allowed him to be free while he awaited his appeal, as long as he didn't leave the state.
"Even by that date apparently he'd already moved to Las Vegas, so we just would like to have some, you know, the court's orders have to be followed," said Benton County Assistant Prosecutor Terry Bloor.
Prosecutors say Foos is scheduled to be in court here next week.
A judge could order him to jail at that time.
He also must file an appeal by next week or it'll be dismissed.
A Las Vegas church's website has listed him as Pastor for more than a year.
