Former Youth Pastor Gets Probation In Sex Assault

Eric Caverly Served At Springs Community Church

A former Colorado Springs youth pastor has been sentenced to probation after pleading guilty to having a three-year sexual relationship with a troubled teenage girl.

Under a plea agreement, 37-year-old Eric Caverly won't face prison time for sex assaults that began when the girl was 15 years old.

According to the Colorado Springs Gazette, an additional count alleging that Caverly sexually abused a second girl while serving at Springs Community Church was dismissed.

Police said the investigation began Dec. 4 after a report that a volunteer with a church's youth group had engaged in sexual contact with a girl who was a member of the church.
