Former Garland youth minister Derek Hutter sentenced to 22 years in prison for having affair with a minor

A former Garland youth minister accused of persuading a 13-year-old girl in his youth group to have a sexual relationship with him has been sentenced to 22 years in federal prison.
Thirty-eight-year-old Derek Hutter was sentenced Wednesday. He had pleaded guilty to enticing a minor.

The victim's parents contacted police in October 2014 after they say Hutter, who was a pastor at South Garland Baptist Church, emailed their daughter and asked for sexually explicit photographs. Police say Hutter had several explicit photographs of the victim on his phone.
According to an arrest affidavit, Hutter and the victim had sex 20 times between January 2014 and September 2014 at the church and his house.
