Pastor Charles Luke Jr., arrested

Pastor Charles Luke Jr., was arrested for allegedly having sex with a 14-year-old girl. Luke was charged child molestation and statutory rape.

Charles Luke Jr., 42, pastor of New Jerusalem Church in Moultrie, was charged with one count of child molestation and one count of statutory rape, said Chris Robinson, investigator with the Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office.

Robinson said a 14-year-old girl reported to a local medical office that she had been sexually molested over the weekend by Luke. The Department of Family and Children’s Services also became involved, Robinson said, and reported the allegation to law enforcement officials.

There are several unconfirmed reports that Luke was also arrested for rape when he was pastor at First African Baptist in Sylvester, GA.

This is not his first time with allegations of this kind. He was once my minister at First African Baptist in Sylvester, GA and was accused of rape a few years ago. Don't know what happened with that.

This is the same man that was accused of rape a few years ago. Don't people listen to the news. You can’t trust everyone who lift up their hands and shout praise the Lord.

I am looking for links to Luke’s earlier arrest. If you know of any, please post them in the comments or email them to me if you have any additional information.
