Youth pastor pleads guilty to sex with 13-year-old girl

DALLAS (AP) — A 37-year-old former minister at a North Texas church faces up to life in prison for luring a girl in his youth group into having sex with him.

Derek Hutter pleaded guilty Wednesday to enticement of a minor in the case involving a 13-year-old girl.

Hutter, who was arrested last fall, remains in custody pending sentencing by a federal judge in Dallas.

Authorities say Hutter was a youth pastor at South Garland Baptist Church and married when he began an online and cellphone relationship with the teen.

Prosecutors say Hutter sexually assaulted the girl several times and asked her to email him suggestive photos of herself. Hutter was arrested after the girl’s parents found the images.

Hutter initially faced child pornography-related charges but pleaded guilty to the enticement count.
