A former Tulia priest will spend the next ten years behind bars after pleading guilty to Indecency With a Child.

John Salazar entered that plea yesterday.

He's guilty of one count of indeceny with a child. The incident happened back in 2001 in Tulia.

Salazar was a priest from the Amarillo Catholic Diocese working there until 2003.

He also served time in a California prison during the mid 80's for another instance of sexual assault.
