A former youth pastor accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl faces up to 90 days in jail and at least 10 years’ probation under a plea agreement with prosecutors, according to the Colorado Springs Gazette.

The newspaper said Joshua Amoroso will plead guilty to one count of sexual assault on a child for his three-month relationship with the girl.

Amoroso, 22, worked as a youth pastor at Gateway Church in Colorado Springs. Church officials said Amoroso was terminated Oct. 18 when the investigation started.

Police said a 14-year-old girl told them that she had had sexual contact with Amoroso at multiple locations around Colorado Springs.
