A former Pennsylvania pastor has pleaded guilty to charges he sexually abused a girl for more than a decade starting when she was 12 years old, eventually getting her pregnant.

Forty-five-year-old Santos Rosado already faced sentencing in another sex case involving an underage girl when he pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges including statutory sexual assault.

Rosado also agreed to give up his parental rights to the victim's now-10-year-old son. Sentencing is scheduled for December.

Prosecutors say Rosado met the girl's family while a pastor a Bethlehem, Northampton County congregation and tried to force her to have an abortion after getting her pregnant.

Rosado also faces sentencing on indecent assault and other charges for molesting a 14-year-old girl who he met while a pastor at another congregation in Bethlehem.
