Family Member Of Victim Assaults Accused OK Pastor

Joplin’s NBC affiliate reports:

A Wyandotte pastor charged with felony child sexual abuse was assaulted by a member of the victim’s family, according to Miami Police Chief Thomas Anderson. The Ottawa County Prosecutor filed the sexual abuse charge against Fred Gammon, Jr, 42, of Miami on Monday, Feb. 13. Court records show Gammon’s wife, Tonya, posted his $35,000 bail. “The victim’s family member confronted Gammon and said he had enough, and hit Gammon several times,” Anderson said. Online records show no charges have been filed against the victim’s family member.
