Former Southern Baptist youth pastor gets 17 yrs

The former Southern Baptist youth pastor at Seaford Baptist Church, Jeremy “Jack” Duffer, 40, was sentenced to 17 years in prison for sexually assaulting two girls. The Virginia Gazette reported:

The charges stem from incidents in 2008 and 2009 involving two 15-year-old girls. Duffer was arrested last August after the parents of one of the girls contacted the Sheriff’s Office after discovering an inappropriate text message from Duffer to their teenage daughter.

In February, when the conviction was handed down and the March 13 sentencing date set, the York County, Va., Daily Press, wrote:

Jeremy “Jack” Ryan Duffer, a 40-year-old former youth pastor at Seaford Baptist Church, pleaded guilty in York-Poquoson Circuit Court to eight charges of aggravated sexual battery with a child between the ages of 13 and 17 and a single count of taking indecent liberties with a child. In return, nine additional charges of aggravated sexual battery were dropped by the prosecution.
