Baptist pastor James Burton convicted

Pastor James Burton, profiled here, was convicted of molesting a young girl while he was the pastor at Greater Faith Baptist Church.

The Allen County jury reached the guilty verdicts Thursday night against 51-year-old James Burton on two counts of felony child molesting. The Journal Gazette reports jurors acquitted Burton of two less-serious molesting charges.

Prosecutors charged Burton molested the now-10-year-old girl while she was a foster child in his care from 2009 until early 2012. He was pastor of Greater Faith Baptist Church when he was arrested last year.
