A Shreveport pastor has been sentenced to six-and-a-half years in prison for transporting minors to and from Texas for sex.

Fifty-four-year-old Andrea Lewis was convicted for coercing at least three young church and choir members into sex from 1994 to 2000 and using church-related travel to cover up the abuse.

Lewis is also sentenced to three years supervised probation, and he must register as a sex offender.
