Ex-youth pastor sentenced for misconduct with teenage girl

ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) — A former youth pastor has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for sexual misconduct with a teenage girl during a central Indiana church conference.

A Madison County judge ordered the maximum sentence Monday for 34-year-old Derrick Hampsch, who pleaded guilty last month to a felony charge of sexual misconduct with a minor.

The Herald Bulletin reports (http://bit.ly/1GD5ZQi ) that Hampsch was the youth pastor at First Baptist Church in Vincennes when he and the then-14-year-old girl attended the 2010 conference in Anderson. Authorities say Hampsch fondled the girl and had her fondle him while they and others stayed overnight at an Anderson church.

Hampsch has pleaded not guilty in a Knox County court to similar charges in Vincennes.
