OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) -- A former youth pastor at a west Omaha church is now in jail, accused of having sex with a 15-year old human trafficking victim.

Klint Bitter turned himself in at the Sarpy County Jail Tuesday. He's charged with first-degree sexual assault of a child. The 34-year-old allegedly answered an online ad posted by a sex trafficking suspect in Bellevue.

Bitter was a pastor of kids and student ministry at Christ Community Church near 108th and Harney. Church officials said Bitter has been fired from that position.
