After an emotional day in court, a former youth pastor gets 15 years in prison for raping a 13-year-old girl.

In a crowded courtroom, 40-year-old Glenn Ford told the teenage victim “he was sorry and asked for forgiveness”. After testimony from Ford's wife and a sex offender therapist, Ford was handed the maximum sentence for statutory rape.

Last month, Ford pled guilty to having sex with the girl in the basement of a church. According to police, Ford also had inappropriate sexual contact with the girl several times at his home.
