Pastor Admits to Sexually Abusing 16-year-old, Begs Judge For Leniency
Michael Bryant, the former pastor of Hour of Restoration COGIC in Memphis, who admitted to inappropriately touching and exposing himself to a 16-year-old girl over the past two years, must be really messed up in the head or think he's a celebrity because he asked the judge not to send him to prison because he's embarrassed and extremely, extremely remorseful. The 48-year-old told the judge: "I want probation so I can go out and get help and be able to work at the same time. I want to live. I want to live." That argument failed to convince the judge, who sentenced Michael to 6 years in prison.
