SIDNEY, Iowa (AP) - A southwest Iowa pastor has been given 25 years in prison for sexually abusing a 5-year-old girl.

Roger Kissel was sentenced Wednesday in Sidney. In March a Fremont County jury convicted the 68-year-old of sex abuse and two counts of lascivious acts with a child.

When he was arrested, Kissel was a pastor at the nondenominational Sidney Cowboy Church. Police have said the allegations weren’t connected to the church. Prosecutors say the crimes occurred in 2013.
