WESTMINSTER – A church youth group leader was sentenced to 90 days in jail as a condition of three years of probation today for smoking marijuana and having an unlawful sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl in the parking lot of the church.

Timothy Han, 21, Fullerton, pleaded guilty in October to one count of unlawful sex act with a minor and one misdemeanor count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

He was a youth group leader at Miracle Land Korean Baptist Church in Cypress when he met the 15-year-old girl through the church, according to a news release from the Orange County District Attorney's Office.

On June 22, 2008, Han drove the underage girl to the church parking lot, where he engaged in sex acts with her after smoking marijuana, according to Deputy District Attorney Nikki Buracchio.
