Southern Baptist Pastor, Douglas W. Myers, pleaded guilty in a Lake County Florida court to molesting a 13-year-old boy whose grandmother he had befriended. The abuse reportedly began in July 2005 and continued for six months. During that time, Myers would also drive the boy to school.
Myers was considered a trusted church leader by some and worked as a pastor in several states, including Alabama and Maryland. He will serve seven years behind bars and will continue to be monitored even after he is released.
