CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

The man convicted of sexually abusing four young children at the Hope Baptist Church in Linndale was sentenced to serve additional prison time on Monday.

Robert Owens was sentenced to six years behind bars.

Last month, Owens pleaded guilty to two counts of gross sexual imposition.

In 2008, he was sentenced to serve four years in prison, and was to be released last month until two new victims came forward.

The new victims are sisters, and were 9 and 11 at the time of the alleged sexual assaults back in 2008.
