Thunderstorms later this afternoon and overnight may produce some hail and gusty winds to possibly 60 mph....locally heavy rainfall and lightning. The storms should steadily weaken as they move eastward...so your risk of a severe storm is higher to the east and lower to the west.
COALGATE, OK - A former Coalgate youth pastor will spend the next 10 years in prison for sex crimes against a young girl. 28-year-old Dustin Werneburg pleaded guilty Thursday to two of the eight charges against him in a plea deal with prosecutors.
Police arrested Werneburg last November in Blanchard, Oklahoma, where he was working as a teacher's aide. He resigned last August as the youth pastor at First Baptist Church in Coalgate when a parent came forward, and police began looking into inappropriate text messages he had exchanged with a female youth group member.
Werneburg also received a 30 year suspended sentence if he violates parole when he is released.
