Ark. pastor accused of having sex with minor

Authorities in Cross County say a pastor is being held on a charge of having sex with a minor, and the girl's family members say she is pregnant.
WYNNE, Ark. (AP) - Authorities in Cross County say a pastor is being held on a charge of having sex with a minor, and the girl's family members say she is pregnant.

Cross County sheriff's deputies say 39-year-old James Edward Davis has a court appearance set for March 8. He is accused of sexually assaulting the girl four times since 2010.

The sheriff's office on Monday wouldn't release bond information regarding Davis and couldn't say whether he has an attorney.

Jonesboro television station KAIT reports Davis is pastor of Morning Star Baptist Church south of Wynne near Cotton Plant.

Investigators say Davis is the former boyfriend of the girl's mother, who is currently in jail.
