WARREN (AP) – A former pastor of a suburban Detroit church who was principal of its school has been sentenced to about seven years in prison after pleading no contest to charges he sexually assaulted a teenage boy and accosted another.

Christopher Settlemoir was sentenced Tuesday in a Warren court, making no comment before the judge. He was pastor at Warren’s Antioch Baptist Church and principal of Antioch Baptist Academy.

The Macomb Daily reports the sentencing range had been between nearly seven years to 15 years, but the court agreed to a deal with the 27-year-old Settlemoir in which he would be sentenced at the bottom of the range.

Settlemoir pleaded no contest to multiple counts in April. The plea isn’t an admission of guilt, but is treated as such for sentencing purposes.
