Minister Pleads Guilty To Secret Videotaping

A Pitt County minister has admitted he secretly videotaped youngsters at his Winterville church.

Reverend Leon Harris, the former pastor at the Rose Hill Free Will Baptist Church, pled guilty Tuesday to four counts of second degree exploitation of a minor. He was sentenced to six months of intensive probation, plus another three years of regular probation.

Harris must also register as a sex offender in North Carolina for the next 10 years. Police arrested Harris two years ago. Authorities say they found hidden cameras in his church.
