Pastor Sentenced For Groping A Minor

Minnesota: Jeffrey Arlan Mobley, 33, of Cottage Grove pleaded guilty in March to one count of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct. On Tuesday, Dakota County District Judge Shawn Moynihan sentenced Mobley to 32 days in the county jail, with the possibility of work release, and up to 10 years of probation.

In March 2008, he grabbed a 15-year-old girl's buttocks while hugging her, according to charges. He also sent her sexually explicit text messages. If Mobley violates the terms of his probation, which include no unsupervised contact with minors except his own daughters, he faces 18 months in state prison.

"You're walking a tightrope, and should you fall, it's going to be a long fall," Moynihan said at the sentencing.
