A former UK Basketball player is headed to prison for sexually abusing a teenage girl.

A judge also says Michael Porter will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

The sentencing happened Thursday morning in Fayette County.

Porter admits to having sexual contact with the girl who he met while leading a church group.

Police say it happened in 2009 and 2010 when she was 14 and 15-years-old.

Porter was sentenced to 2-years in prison.
