Pastor Laneer Fisher arrested

Rev. Dr. Laneer Fisher was arrested for allegedly molesting two boys from his church. The molestations took place a few years ago.

A criminal complaint filed by Aliquippa police said officers were contacted in June by a couple and their son, now 17, who said the incidents with Fisher began two years ago.

The teen accused Fisher of touching his arms and neck, caressing his chest, kissing him and having him sit on his lap, the complaint states.

The other young man, now in his 20s, filed a complaint with Beaver Falls police about incidents that he said occurred eight to 10 years ago at the Aliquippa church, Goodwald said.

Fisher is the pastor at Miracle Church of God in Christ. I sent an email asking for Pastor Fisher’s side of the story. I hope he provides a press release or comments.
