Youth pastor Brandon Carter convicted

Former Baptist youth pastor Brandon James Carter accepted a plea deal that will put him in prison for less that two years for kidnapping and taking indecent liberties with a 13-year old girl. He molested the girl while she was asleep.

He was sentenced to less than two years in prison. Once released, Carver will be on probation for nearly three years and be added to the Sex Offender Registry for 30 years.

Carter was arrested in March 2012. At the time he was serving as youth and music minister at Mount Zion Baptist Church in Cherryville. The allegations against Carter were separate from the church, but he was asked to resign after his arrest.
