ORMOND BEACH, Fla. -

An Ormond Beach minister, called "Apostle Tito" by his followers, has been sentenced on Tuesday to life in prison without parole.

Luis Morales, 58, was accused of sexually molesting several children who are members of his religious organization, En Fuego for Jesus. He was convicted of sex trafficking of a minor, transporting a minor over state lines with the intent to engage in sexual activity.

According to the state attorney's office, in November 2009, Morales and one of his "prophets" transported a 12-year-old minor, who was also a member of the ministry, from Florida to Connecticut knowing that the minor would be caused to engage in a sex act.

In December 2010, Morales transported another minor, age 13, who was also a member of the ministry from Arizona to Florida, and then to the Virgin Islands, with the intent to engage in sexual activity with the minor.
