WAVERLY, Iowa --- A pastor accused of illegal contact with a 15-year-old boy this week admitted committing third-degree sexual abuse.

Dennis Brown, 67, of Eldora, will face sentencing at 10 a.m. Aug. 10 in Bremer County District Court.

According to court documents, the boy and Brown became acquainted online and met in Waverly. The teenager's family learned of the encounter, however, and contacted authorities.

Brown's attorney, Kevin Engels of Cedar Falls, had argued unsuccessfully that some potential evidence should be suppressed. The material included statements Brown allegedly made to investigators and his personal computer.
