Lee gets 11 years in federal prison for running off, having sex with teen

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) A former Baptist pastor who disappeared with a 15-year-old girl for a month and later pleaded guilty to raping her was sentenced Friday to more than 11 years in federal prison.

Lewis Lee, 54, admitted in May to four federal charges, including crossing state lines to have sex with a minor. In August, he was sentenced to 9 1/3 to 28 years in state prison after pleading guilty to seven counts of third-degree rape.

Lee will serve 11 years and three months in a federal prison and then the remainder of his time in state prison.
