TIGARD, Ore. -- A Quran instructor has been sentenced to four years in prison for sexually abusing two children while at the helm of an Islamic Educational Institution.

The first victim to come forward was studying the Quran with Hasan at the American Islamic Center for the holy Quran in Tigard. During the investigation, the police discovered the second victim.

Hasan taught the Quran across Oregon and Washington and authorities fear there are more victims.
