MENIFEE (CBSLA.com) — A former Mormon church official was sentenced to three years in prison Wednesday for sexually assaulting two teenage girls.

KNX 1070’s Mike Landa reports that a Riverside County judge also told Todd Edwards, of Murrieta, that he must register as a sex offender.

Edwards was convicted of sexually assaulting two girls who attended the Menifee Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where he served as bishop.

A third victim came forward, but the crime was beyond the statute of limitations.

After a plea deal, a charge of witness intimidation was dismissed.
