KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A former Kansas City church pastor pleaded guilty to child molestation and sexual misconduct involving a 13-year-old girl.
Fifty-nine-year-old George L. Spencer on Thursday was sentenced to a total of seven years in prison for groping and sodomizing the girl in February 2012.
Spencer was an associate pastor at Greater Works CME Church in south Kansas City. Court documents indicate he committed the crimes in his office while the girl's mother and grandmother were attending Bible study at the church.
The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/1bRskOz ) the church's pastor told Spencer the next day to turn in his keys and not return.
Spencer was arrested in March 2013 in New Orleans and extradited to Missouri.
