Eugene Profeta, the minister Jessica Hahn turned to for solace after her sexual encounter with television evangelist Jim Bakker, got a six-month jail sentence today in a tax evasion case she helped put together. Hahn was Profeta's one-time church secretary whose sexual encounter with Bakker toppled his PTL ministry. She helped state investigators put together the case against her former boss after being promised immunity from prosecution. She said she also had an affair with Profeta.

A minister who was once Jessica Hahn's boss was indicted today on charges that he skimmed $90,000 from his Long Island church and then tried to persuade Hahn to lie to a grand jury about it. The Rev. Eugene Profeta, 51, pleaded not guilty to taking the money and was ordered to stay away from Hahn, who was once a secretary in Profeta's church. Hahn's 1980 sexual encounter with the Rev. Jim Bakker led to his resignation last year from the PTL ministry.
