Ex-Worker with Altar Boys Gets 6 Months in Prison

January 21, 1993

A Riverside man who worked with altar boys at two Riverside

churches was sentenced Tuesday to six months in federal prison for

transporting a young boy across state lines for sexual purposes,

officials reported.

Dennis Raymond Jost, 50, pleaded guilty to the single charge

and was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Robert M. Takasugi

in Los Angeles.

The judge also sentenced Jost to three years of probation and

required that he not associate with anyone under the age of 21

during that time, said Special Agent Karen Gardner of the FBI

office in Los Angeles.

Jost faced a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.

He was arrested May 14 on a federal indictment that alleges

he took a Riverside boy to Tucson, Ariz., and Albuquerque., N.M.,

between July 14, 1990, and Aug. 5 1990, with the intent that the

minor engage in sexual activity. Such activity violates laws of

both states.

At the time, Jost was working as a volunteer coordinator of

altar boy services at Queen of Angels and St. Thomas Catholic

churches in Riverside. He was suspended from that work when church

officials learned of the federal charge pending against him.

Church and federal officials have declined to state whether

the charge against Jost involved an altar boy with whom he may have

worked. A civil suit against Jost is pending, according to FBI
