LYON, FRANCE LYON, France (AP) _ A former Church of Scientology leader was convicted of involuntary homicide and sentenced to 18 months in prison Friday in the 1988 suicide of a church member.

Twelve other defendants facing lesser charges _ theft, complicity or abuse of confidence _ were given suspended sentences of eight to 15 months each. Charges were dropped against 10 others.

Jean-Jacques Mazier, the former head of the church in Lyon, France's second-largest city, was also fined $100,000, the Lyon court ruled. The prosecution had requested a three-year suspended sentence.
