MESQUITE, Texas - A former youth pastor at a Mesquite church has been sentenced to four years in prison for sexually assaulting a child.
Police arrested 34-year-old Steven Winn early last year.
He was an assistant youth pastor at Open Door Baptist Church on South Belt Line Rd.
Investigators say he had been in a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student at the church's Christian Academy.
Winn accepted a plea deal and was sentenced to four years in prison on three counts of sexual assault of a child.
He will serve those sentences concurrently and will register as a sex offender when he is released.
