All four men pleaded no contest to failure to report child abuse.

Prosecutors say the men failed to report allegations that then-VineLife youth pastor Jason Roberson had an inappropriate relationship with a church member starting when she was 15 and continuing for seven years. Roberson pleaded guilty and was sentenced last year to two years in prison for sexual exploitation and stalking.
