Ex-Ga. youth minister to prison

 

LEXINGTON, Ga. — A former Oglethorpe County youth minister has been sentenced to prison after pleading guilty to molesting a teenage girl.

Chief Superior Court Judge John Bailey sentenced 44-year-old Norman Anthony Pugh on Monday to 13 years in prison with another seven years on probation for inappropriately touching a girl who was 13 years old at the time.

District Attorney Bob Lavender dropped eight additional counts of furnishing sexual material to a child.

Pugh, who previously served as a youth minister for Arnoldsville Baptist Church, was acquitted in November 2006 of charges he molested a teenage girl who was a member of the church.

Pugh was not working for the church when he was arrested last year and charged with molesting a different girl.
