LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas church pastor has been arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting two teen boys at his home.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that 57-year-old Billy Eckstine McCurdy of the Revival Temple Church of God in Christ was arrested Friday on 11 sexual abuse charges.
He’s accused of using his position in the church and Bible scriptures to force the boys into sexual relationships with him.
Both boys testified before a grand jury, which indicted McCurdy on Thursday of six counts of sexual assault and five counts of open or gross lewdness.
The indictment came five years after a similar case against him was dropped.
Police say McCurdy has spent a lot of time with young people, including trips to Arizona and California.
