In addition to a six year-term in state prison, of which he must serve at least three years, Pauling also must register as a sexual offender for life.
McElfresh, his bail dramatically reduced, was released on bond in September 2015. He is due back in court April 15, 2016 for a trial readiness conference.
UPDATE (Nov 11): Although accused of being present while a 16 year old was raped by pornographer-turned-pastor Donny Pauling, in 2014, Lewis McElfresh is enrolling in sex offender counseling and will be on probation for five years. He will serve no jail time and will not have to register as a sex offender after pleading 'no contest' to felony child endangerment. Visiting judge James Garbolino handed down the sentence. The victim, 16 at the time of the incident, also requested and was granted a ten year restraining order against McElfresh, who was in Sutter County court for the sentencing but has relocated to West Virginia.
