Former Md. Church Youth Leader Gets 40 Years

Posted:
ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) - A Las Vegas man convicted of sexually abusing boys while he was a youth leader at a church in Maryland in the 1980s has been sentenced to 40 years in prison.

Nathaniel Morales was sentenced Thursday in Montgomery County Circuit Court. A jury found the 56-year-old guilty in May on three counts of sexual abuse of a minor and two counts of sexual offense.

Prosecutors have said Morales worked with youth ministries and conducted Bible studies for Covenant Life Church in Gaithersburg. He was accused of abusing three boys from 1983 to 1991 at group sleepovers and in their homes.

One of the victims reported the abuse to Montgomery County Police in 2009.
