Trial Date For Former Youth Minister

A trial date for sentencing has been set for a former East Texas youth minister, who pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a 12 year old girl. Jury selection for Sean Irvin will begin February 27th.

Irvin was the youth minister at Concorde Baptist Church near Chandler until 2002. The victim, who knew Irvin through a family relationship, testified she was sexually assaulted for three years. On Monday, Irvin rejected the judge's 18 year prison sentence, opting to have a jury decide his sentence instead. Sean Irvin faces up to 20 years in prison.
