Lake Crystal pastor jailed on sexual assault allegations
MANKATO, Minn. - Authorities were holding a Lake Crystal area pastor pending sexual assault charges, Blue Earth County authorities said.
The pastor, who serves two churches, was arrested Thursday and was expected to appear in court Monday.
Capt. Will Purvis of the Blue Earth County sheriff's department said Friday that the investigation began a week earlier when the victim, a "young adult," made a report. The victim described several incidents, not all of which took place in the county, he added.
The pending charges include first-degree criminal sexual conduct and third-degree criminal sexual conduct, Purvis said.
Purvis would not say if the alleged victim is a man or a woman because he was concerned about revealing the victim's identity.
