A former local gospel singer is found guilty of child molestation...


Bedford, Virginia - A former gospel singer for nearly 20 years is found guilty of molesting a 9-year-old girl.

Tracy Hash toured the country and our area singing Christian music -- he's now facing four felony child molestation charges in Bedford for abuse reported in March.

To avoid his trial -- set to start on Tuesday -- Hash was left with two options.

"Based on the evidence we had it was either plead guilty or face a jury," Bedford Commonwealth Attorney, Randy Krantz, said.

Hash admitted the state had enough evidence to convict him. The judge found him guilty.

He could get life in prison for abusing the 9-year-old girl.
