OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) — A former youth minister already convicted of sex abuse has pleaded guilty to four more counts.

Jacob Allen Conder was scheduled to go to trial Tuesday in Daviess Circuit Court on the four felony charges, but the Messenger-Inquirer reports that he entered a guilty plea Friday. Under terms of the plea, he would serve three years concurrently with a one-year sentence he received in December for a similar charge in Letcher County.

Conder was a deputy constable and a youth director at Wing Avenue Baptist Church in Owensboro when the allegations were made.

The Daviess charges stem from a sleep-over at the church. A 15-year-old girl accused Conder of touching her inappropriately, which led to two other girls coming forward with similar charges.

The previous charges stem from allegations during a mission trip to Letcher County.
