A former church leader, already serving time for sexually abusing a young boy, has pleaded guilty to federal charges in another case.
Bishop Joe Flowers was convicted last year of abusing an 8-year-old boy from his church. He was sentenced to 7 years in prison for that crime.
Late today, the U.S. Attorney's Office said Flowers pleaded guilty to transporting a minor for sexual activity.
Prosecutors say he took the child to an Orlando, Florida amusement park in 2004, and sexually abused him.
Flowers faces 5 to 30 years in prison for the latest charge. He will be sentenced September 6th.
