Youth pastor Michael Norris indicted

It’s more bad news for Pastor Michael Scott Norris. He’s already facing charges that he molested two young children. Now he faces 17 child pornography-related charges.

The grand jury returned the indictment Wednesday charging Michael Scott Norris, a former youth minister and Bible camp counselor, with 11 counts of production of child pornography relating to sexual tapes he allegedly produced of a 10-year-old girl and her 11-year-old brother, whom he met at church.

Norris is being held in Clark County jail. Norris has been held in jail pending his trail, because he has had to wait until the federal government released his porn tapes to his defense attorney. It took four years.

Norris is 44. He’s likely to face a long prison term on the child molestation charges. The Federal child porn charges will assure that Norris dies in prison as an old man.
