A former youth minister was sentenced to five years in prison Friday for his involvement in a two-year sexual relationship with a 15-year-old member of the church’s youth group.
Paul D. Glover, 33, of Hattiesburg, Miss., sat solemn in court Friday morning, squeezing the hand of a woman sitting to his left and exchanging a brief hug before being sentenced….
The story began some three years ago when Glover, then a Glassboro, New Jersey, resident and youth minister, began a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old member of the Church of Christ’s youth group…. For two years, the youth minister and the teenage girl saw each other, allegedly engaging in multiple sexual encounters across the county.
The relationship became public when the girl, fearing that she might be pregnant, told her family. She had taken three pregnancy tests, all of which erroneously registered positive, when she broke the news, explained church officials.
