Arizona youth minister pleads guilty in abuse case
MESA, Ariz. -- An Arizona youth minister has pleaded guilty in a child molestation case.
A Superior Court spokesman says Jasmine ``J'' Omar Brown changed his plea Tuesday. Brown pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual conduct with a minor and one count of child molestation. He will be sentenced in September.
At the time of Brown's arrest in 2011, Mesa police had said the victim disclosed to investigators that Brown had touched him inappropriately on two occasions during a summer camp at Family of God Christian Fellowship in Apache Junction.
Brown told police he had worked as a full-time teacher's aide at Phoenix Collegiate Academy, working with special needs children.
