Youth Minister Sent To Prison

A Carter County youth minister was sent to prison Tuesday.

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.
