Pastor gets probation for sex with teen

August 29, 2008 3:04:20 PM PDT
A former Fort Worth pastor has been sentenced to 10 years' probation for sexually assaulting a teenage church member. James "Jay" Virtue Robinson the Fourth was sentenced Friday afternoon after pleading guilty, which means he must register as a sex offender for life.

Police say some of the liaisons with the teenage girl happened inside Southwood Baptist Church.

Robinson resigned in July, a month after his arrest.

He received deferred adjudication. That means if he completes probation, the case will be dismissed and no conviction will be on his record, although the arrest will remain.
