3-years term for Kitsap County pastor in sex case



PORT ORCHARD, Wash. (AP) — A Kitsap County youth pastor who pleaded guilty to sex charges was sentenced Tuesday in Port Orchard to more than three years in prison.

KOMO News reports (http://bit.ly/qR6uXS ) Dirk Jackson originally pleaded not guilty to child rape, but pleaded guilty to indecent liberties in a deal with Kitsap County prosecutors.

A woman said she was molested by Jackson when she was a 12-year-old student of his at Manchester Christian Academy.

When she recently saw Jackson at a different church, she says she feared he had access to potential victims and reported her allegations to the sheriff’s office.
