A former Henderson youth pastor is convicted of 16 sexual abuse related charges in Colorado while still facing similar charges in the tristate.

44 year-old John Brothers is a former youth minister at Hyland Baptist Church. He could face life in prison.

Now this is just the beginning of Brothers' days in a courtroom.

He is still awaiting trial in Henderson.

Brothers was first arrested in 2011 for the alleged sexual-abuse of two members of Hyland Baptist's Youth Group.

Depending on what happens next in Colorado, Brothers is expected to stand trial in Henderson at the end of September.
