Sexual Abuse Oprah

Accused minister hospitalized in N.C. after daughters' `Oprah' segment airs

A former minister from North Carolina has been hospitalized after his adult daughters went on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and accused him of molesting them. It's unclear whether he'll be well enough for Monday's scheduled start of his trial on sex abuse charges involving one of the daughters. The program aired Thursday, hours before paramedics were called to the home of 66-year-old Ted Hendrix of Denver, North Carolina. When medics arrived early Friday, they found Hendrix on the floor, breathing but barely able to speak. It was unclear whether Hendrix watched the show. A family friend declined to comment. A newspaper reports Hendrix is in fair condition. Hendrix's attorney says he hasn't spoken with his client. Hendrix, is charged with second-degree rape, incest, second-degree sexual offense and crime against nature.
