Popular youth evangelist Matt Pitt, 30, who founded one of America’s largest Christian youth ministries known as The Basement will spend the next 10 months in jail after an Alabama judge revoked his probation for a 2012 crime on Tuesday.

The evangelist made headlines in August after he jumped off a 45-foot cliff in an unsuccessful attempt to elude Alabama police for allegedly impersonating a police officer for the second time since 2012.

Shelby County District attorney Robby Owens told AL.COM on Tuesday after Pitt’s revocation hearing that Pitt should have pleaded to a felony for impersonating a police officer in 2012, but he had offered him a chance to plea to a misdemeanor thinking that the youth pastor would stay out of trouble with his work at The Basement.
