Youth Pastor arrested

GregoryNies Gregory Nies is (was) the youth pastor at Lititz United Methodist church and is (was) the Republican Candidate for mayor of Lititz. Now he’s nothing, and with good reason too. He’s been promiscuous before. I’m not clear if it was with another 12-year-old girl.

According to the affidavit, police first talked to Nies about the allegations on May 7 at his home "during the course of an unrelated investigation." Police asked Nies if there was any truth to a "past allegation" involving him and a female member of his former church.

Nies admitted having an "inappropriate relationship" with the alleged victim, according to the affidavit.

Nies is looking at 50 years. He is accused of a lengthy series of sexual assaults on a 12-year-old girl, including charges of cyber sex. Did I mention he was running for mayor?
