PORTSMOUTH, Va. (AP) - A former Portsmouth youth minister convicted of sex charges will spend four months in jail.

Media outlets report that Brian Norris was sentenced Tuesday in Portsmouth Circuit Court. He had pleaded guilty in May to two felony counts of indecent liberties while in a custodial or supervisory relationship.

Norris formerly was youth and singles minister at Western Branch Baptist Church in Portsmouth. Prosecutors say he had sexual contact with two teenage girls who were involved in the church’s youth ministry.

The girls were 16 and 17 when the incidents occurred between September 2012 and November 2013.
