Ind. pastor accused of traveling to meet child for sex


An Indiana pastor has been arrested in Kentucky after authorities say he traveled to Frankfort to meet a minor for sex.

Local news outlets report that officials arrested 46-year-old David James Brown Wednesday on a charge of prohibited use of an electronic communication system for the purpose of procuring a minor for a sex offense.

Attorney General Andy Beshear's office said in a news release that Brown used an online messaging application to communicate with an undercover investigator posing as a minor. Brown asked the undercover investigator to have sexual relations with him.

Officials say Brown traveled to Frankfort to meet the minor and was arrested by investigators there.

Brown said he was a pastor at the First Christian Church of Jeffersonville, Indiana.

It's unclear if he has an attorney.
