Former youth pastor Matthew Capranelli pleaded guilty to sexual assault and the sexual exploitation of a child. He faces 10 years to life at his sentencing. Let’s hope for life.
Capranelli, who subjected a former Mountain View Community Church youth group member to sexual contact repeatedly between Oct. 1, 2004 and Aug. 31, 2007 while she was between 15 and 18 years old, will be sentenced Dec. 12 in Douglas County.
Capranelli must register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
