LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – A disgraced Lubbock pastor will be sentenced in Lubbock federal court June 18th.  Dean Richard Tarkington had been pastor of the Word of Faith Christian Center, which is now shut down.  Court records say he sent inappropriate pictures of himself to an undercover agent who had posed on the Internet as a 15-year-old girl.

Tarkington pleaded guilty to one count of attempting to possess child pornography.  At his June 18th sentencing he could face as much as 10 years in federal prison, a quarter-million-dollar fine, or both.
