Texas - A former Tulia priest has been sentenced to ten years in prison.

The Swisher County Attorney says John Anthony Salazar pleaded guilty Monday for an incident which occurred back in December 2001.

Salazar is being charged with indecency with a child. The case was originally indicted back in January 2012 and a follow-up trial was scheduled for January 2014, but is no longer needed.

Salazar is being held in the Swisher County Jail and is waiting transport to the Texas Department of Corrections.
