TULSA — A judge has delayed court hearings for three of five employees of a Tulsa megachurch charged with waiting two weeks to report the rape of a 13-year-old girl on church grounds.

Victory Christian Center employees Paul Willemstein, Anna George and Harold “Frank” Sullivan each face one misdemeanor count of failing to report the abuse in a timely manner. They were due in court Wednesday morning, but a judge pushed their hearings to Feb. 13.

Separate hearings are scheduled next week for John and Charica Daugherty — the son and daughter-in-law of the co-founder and head pastor at the 17,000-member church. The couple faces the same charges of failing to report abuse.

Former church employee Chris Denman pleaded guilty to raping the 13-year-old and was sentenced to 55 years in prison.
