OWENSBORO, Ky. - A jury has convicted a former youth minister in western Kentucky of felony sex abuse.

The Messenger-Inquirer reports the jury recommended a one-year sentence for 24-year-old Jacob Conder, a former minister at Wing Avenue Baptist Church and a former deputy constable in Daviess County. He also will be required to register as a sex offender.

The abuse involved a 15-year-old girl and occurred during a mission trip to Letcher County in eastern Kentucky.

The jury in Letcher County deliberated about four hours on Wednesday before returning the verdict.

The newspaper reports Conder is scheduled for trial in Daviess Circuit Court in January on four similar charges.
