An Ashland woman told jurors Thursday that she was forced to perform oral sex on an Ashland pastor who told her she had no choice except to obey him or face beatings. 

The woman, whose name is being withheld by the Daily Press, said Tony Lashbrook repeatedly assaulted her over a two-year period when she was about 10 years old and that she kept the assaults a secret until she was in college in 2018. She said she decided to come forward because a biblical course she was taking said it was a sin for her to keep the abuse secret.
