Youth pastor Joshua Amoroso sentenced

I profiled the depravity of youth pastor Joshua Amoroso back in December of 2010. He raped a 14-year-old girl from his youth group. The victim thought that they were in love, The truth was a different story. Amoroso was in it for the sex with children. Good news America! Amoroso was sentenced to life in prison. No wait… he got just60 days. How did that happen? How did an admitted pedophile get just 60 days?

A Colorado Springs youth pastor who was fired after admitting to a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl in his youth group was sentenced Thursday to 60 days in jail and 10 years-to-life probation.

In handing down his sentence, a judge told Joshua Amoroso he was “sickened” by the betrayal of trust and warned the 22-year-old that violating the terms of his probation could result in a life sentence.

The good news is that he cannot serve as a pastor until his probation expires. Wait.. is that good news? They really screwed up this case. In what other profession are you granted this level of leniency? I smell a rat.
