TUSCUMBIA (TAB) — A former Muscle Shoals youth minister charged with rape and sodomy pled guilty to second-degree sodomy Jan. 29.

Charles Kyle Adcock served as youth minister at Woodward Avenue Baptist Church, Muscle Shoals, from December 2008 to May 2012. The 31 counts of sex crimes against a teen took place from 2010 to 2012 and began when the victim was 14. Adcock was arrested Aug. 20, 2014, in Texas.

Adcock was sentenced to 10 years in prison, split with 15 months to serve in state prison, WHNT News 19 reported. He will get credit for the time he has already served and could be eligible for release as early as 2017.

The plea bargain kept the victim from having to testify in court and ensures Adcock is a registered sex offender for life, according to Colbert County District Attorney Bryce Graham.
