THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - A former minister at a Thomasville church will spend three years in prison after pleading guilty to having sex with a 15-year-old girl.
Kevin Harrison Jr., 36, was charged with child molestation and statutory rape in April of 2014.
He had sex with the teen while he was a minister at The Life, Power, and Praise Church.
The church now has a new pastor and administration and has changed its name to Mount Sinai Apostolic Church.
Church member Sherrie Calloway said, “I'm hoping that we heal as a community and that, as a church family, we continue to grow.”
Harrison must also serve 12 years on probation when he gets out of prison.
