EATON, Ohio (WDTN) – A local youth pastor admits he committed a sex crime.

Kevin Reed, 35, pleaded guilty to sexual battery.

He was involved in an inappropriate relationship with a 17-year-old parishioner.

The teen’s mother reported the relationship to police. She said Reed would pick her daughter up from their home for functions that were not related to the church.

Reed will be sentenced in late August.
