Special to The New York Times

FULLERTON, Calif., June 5 - Ted Patrick, 44 years old, a former community relations consultant who has specialized in aiding parents whose children have joined religious groups opposed by the parents, was sentenced today to 60 days in jail and three years probation for his role in an attempted "deprograming" of a young Orange County woman who had joined the Hare Krishna religious group in Los Angeles. 

Also sentenced today for their parts in the attempted "deprograming" of Joanne Bradley, 19, were her parents, Leo and Margaret Rogin, of Buena Park, Calif., and Mr. Patrick's secretary, Sondra Sachs. 

Mr. Patrick's conviction for false imprisonment came after Mrs. Bradley was held for several hours against her will at her parents' home in Orange County last Oct. 20 while Mr. Patrick unsuccessfully attempted to talk her out of her allegiance to her religious sect, whose full name is the International Society for Krishna Consciousness.
