On Wednesday, Rev. Michael Clare, 40, pleaded guilty in Bronx Criminal Court to raping two teenage girls. The Jamaican national gained access to the girls at the Harvest Worship Center International, a storefront church in the Bronx, where Clare served as pastor for the last several years.

Clare impregnated one of the victims.

CBS New York reported:

Prosecutors say the pastor sexually abused the 14-year-old girl from 2009 to 2011. In the earlier case, prosecutors say the victim was 12 and became pregnant at 15. DNA linked Clare to the child.

Clare was originally charged with rape, criminal sex act, sexual abuse and several other charges.

Under the plea agreement, Clare will be sentenced to five years in prison and will be required to register as a sex offender, according to District Attorney Robert Johnson.

He should be deported upon completion of his sentence.

Despite his illegal status in this country, Clare also served as principal at the Harvest Preparatory Academy.
