JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - A former Arkansas children’s pastor has been given two life sentences in prison without the possibility of parole in the rape of two young girls.

The Jonesboro Sun (https://bit.ly/1SmgsEB ) reports 39-year-old Anthony Waller pleaded guilty and was sentenced Tuesday.

Waller is a former employee of what used to be First Assembly of God Church in Jonesboro. Police say the girls were repeatedly raped in several locations, including the church.

Waller still faces 50 counts of video voyeurism and one count of child pornography.

A police detective testified he found 400,000 images of child pornography and videos of young females inside the church bathroom on an external hard drive of Waller’s. The detective says he found holes in the ceiling of the church bathroom and a place for a hidden camera nearby.
