POPE, Miss. (AP) — A Mississippi pastor is in custody, accused of molesting children.
Willie Forrest is pastor of Springhill Pope Missionary Baptist Church in Panola County.
He is charged with three counts of molesting children under the age of 15.
District Attorney John Champion says children were molested at the church and Forrest’s home in Coldwater.
The pastor was arrested at home Monday and was being held in the Tate County jail.
It's unknown if he's represented by an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
