A youth minster from Carter County, Kentucky, was sent off to prison Tuesday morning on a juvenile sex abuse conviction.

Eric Porter's lawyer said his client felt great remorse after pleading guilty to sexually abusing two 15-year-old girls.

Porter came in contact with the teens as the youth minister at Gregoryville Christian Church.

The teens and their families decided to accept a plea agreement instead of enduring a painful jury trial.

Porter will serve six years in prison and four more on probation.
