A former Valencia man who worked part-time at a Santa Clarita Valley church last year has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for committing six counts of sodomy.

Brandon Wesley Milburn, 27, who worked briefly at the Real Life Church on Newhall Ranch Road in Valencia, appeared Monday in the Circuit Court of St. Louis County, where he was sentenced to 25 years.

In January, Milburn pleaded guilty to six felony counts of first-degree statutory sodomy, Detective Edward Magee of the St. Louis County Police Department said.

His plea was a “blind plea,” Magee said, meaning it was made without a set sentence in place, rather than a plea bargain struck with prosecutors.
