GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin minister convicted of sexually assaulting teenage girls in the Green Bay area has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.
WLUK-TV reports Brown County Circuit Court Judge Donald Zuidmulder also sentenced Jerry Fletcher Jr. to 30 years of extended supervision on Thursday. He was a minister at Crossover Ministries in Black Creek.
Zuidmulder told Fletcher he wanted him to spend the rest of his natural life in prison so he can’t reoffend.
Fletcher has previous child sex convictions in Illinois and Arizona. He also has similar charges still pending in Outagamie County and in Arizona.
In April, Fletcher was convicted of five sexual assault-related felonies, involving three teenage girls. Fletcher claims he suffers from sex addiction.
