Former Rapid City priest sentenced for child sex crimes

RAPID CITY, S.D. — A former Rapid City catholic priest was sentenced on Friday for child sex crimes on top of his current sentence for stealing from the church.

Marcin Garbacz, a native of Poland, first pleaded not guilty, and then guilty for illicit sexual conduct in a foreign place.

While traveling in Poland, Garbacz recorded video of an unclothed minor.

Garbacz received five years with credit for 479 days served and will serve that sentence after his current sentence of seven years and nine months for stealing donations from the Diocese of Rapid City.
