William Best, 48, a former pastor in Valley Grande, Ala. has pleaded guilty to charges of rape and incest.


A former Alabama pastor has been sentenced to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to charges of first-degree rape and incest involving a teenage girl.
William Best's plea came before he was due to face trial Monday for additional charges including sodomy and sexual abuse,AL.com reported citing court records.
The 48-year-old was being held on $2.5 million bond after his arrest last year while serving at a Valley Grande church north of Selma.
That's when his victim told a family member about the sexual abuse that she said took place at not only the church but his home over several years' time,the Selma Times-Journal reported.
Authorities later said they had DNA evidence supporting her allegations.
