A southeastern Pennsylvania pastor will serve 10 to 20 years in state prison for molesting a young girl more than a decade ago.

The Daily Local News reports 65-year-old Homer Richard Clifford Sr. of Coatesville was sentenced Tuesday by Chester County Judge David Bortner.

Clifford worked as pastor at the Crossroads of Faith Missionary Baptist Church in East Fallowfield and as a short-haul truck driver.

He pleaded guilty in April to two counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and was classified by the state Sexual Offender's Assessment Board as a sexually violent predator.

He was charged by police after a 21-year-old woman came forward to say he molested her from 1995 to 1999, when she was between 5 and 8 years old and he was babysitting her.
