KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A wife of a former youth minister who pleaded guilty to sex crimes over two years ago has pleaded guilty to 15 counts of having sex with three minors herself.

Laura Lee Click Salazar served as a youth minister at the Lord's Disciple Ministries for Whosoever Will as well.

The 40 year-old Maryville woman was sentenced to 12 years in prison, but under her plea agreement, she will only have to spend one behind bars, while the remainder will be served with community corrections.

In Sept. 2010, her husband Michael Salazar was sentenced to 20 years in prison for unlawful sexual contact and statutory rape of five girls.
