BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A Baltimore City Circuit Court jury found a pastor guilty of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl from April 2000 until March 2002.

The victim, now 27, was first introduced to Leon W. Jones by her mother, who also participated in the sexual abuse and pleaded guilty to five counts of sexual child abuse for her role.

The jury found Jones, 61, guilty of eight counts of sexual offense in the second-degree.

He faces a maximum of 160 years in prison and is scheduled to be sentenced in June.
