Twenty-seven-year-old Ryan McKelvey was sentenced on Monday in Polk County District Court. He had pleaded guilty to charges of sexual abuse and sexual exploitation by a clergy.

McKelvey was a youth pastor at Heritage Assembly Church in Des Moines. Officers began investigating him after a girl and her parents alleged a sexual assault by McKelvey. A second girl then reported similar incidents.
