MANASSAS, Va. (AP) — A former Virginia youth minister has been sentenced to three years in prison for exposing himself to a girl and forcing her to touch him.

Prosecutors accused 28-year-old Jordan Baird of behaving inappropriately with a 16-year-old who took music lessons from him at the church where his father was the pastor.

They say he lured the girl into a dark room during a music lesson in 2014 and forced her to touch him and later exposed himself. Baird pleaded guilty to indecent liberties of a minor and was sentenced Monday to six years in prison with three suspended and probation.

WRC reports Baird had previously served five months in jail on an indecent liberties with a minor conviction involving another girl.
