SIDNEY, Iowa (AP) - A southwest Iowa pastor has been convicted of sexually abusing a 5-year-old girl.

A Fremont County jury Friday found 68-year-old Roger Kissel guilty of sex abuse and lascivious acts. Radio station KNCY in Nebraska City, Nebraska, reports (https://bit.ly/21S6L9r ) that the jury deliberated for about 2½ hours. Kissel’s sentencing is set for May 4.

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.
