NC couple sentenced in Satanism abuse case

READ MORE:
DURHAM -- A North Carolina couple has been sentenced on misdemeanor charges in a case involving abusing other adults during Satan worship. WRAL reported that 25-year-old Joseph Scott Craig and his 30-year-old wife Joy Johnson were each sentenced Friday to two 60-day suspended sentences and a year of probation. Search warrants said the victims were a man and a woman who moved in with Craig and Johnson after they became friends through their satanic interests. The victims say Craig beat them, shackled them to beds, kept them in dog cages and starved them. Craig entered an Alford plea, which means he maintained his innocence but acknowledged prosecutors had enough evidence for a conviction. Johnson pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting her husband.
