Guilty Plea By Former Youth Pastor


A former Carter County youth minster admitted in court Thursday he sexually assaulted two teenage girls.

Eric Porter pleaded guilty to five different counts involving juvenile rape and sodomy.

The former youth minister at the Gregoryville Christian Church accepted a prosecution plea agreement that recommends a ten year prison sentence.

The crime shocked the community and Porter's attorney said a graphic trial would have been painful for all concerned, especially the young victims.
