BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A former Youth Services counselor has been sentenced to 15 years with 10 suspended for raping a pregnant 17-year-old who was under his supervision.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1bwQP3w ) that Brad Douglas Johnson was sentenced in District Court Tuesday. He pleaded guilty to two felony rape charges in February. Johnson will have to register as a Level I sex offender, the least likely to re-offend.

Court records say the director of Ted Lechner Regional Youth Services Center in Billings called police in December 2013 after a girl reported she had had sex with Johnson. The girl’s cellphone contained text conversations and pornographic pictures Johnson had taken of himself.

At the sentencing, Johnson apologized to the victim and his family and said depression and problems at home motivated his actions.
