CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Thaddeus Stephen MacMoran, 27, was tried in Mecklenburg County Superior Court for statutory sex offense of a person 13, 14 or 15 years old, crime against nature, and four counts of taking indecent liberties with a child.

After a three-day trial, the jury returned verdicts of guilty on all counts Thursday.

The Honorable Forrest D. Bridges, Superior Court Judge, sentenced MacMoran to 222-276 months in prison, according to the Mecklenburg County District Attorney's Office.

Judge Bridges also ordered that, upon his release from prison, MacMoran must register as a sex offender and enroll in satellite-based monitoring for the rest of his life.

MacMoran met the victim at a church where MacMoran was serving as a youth pastor.
