A local youth pastor who had worked at a church in Clayton is accused of having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old.
Andrew Dickson, 30, of University City, is charged with child molestation and two counts of statutory sodomy.
Police say he admitted to engaging in a sexual relationship with the teen, which included oral sex and fondling.
The Central Presbyterian Church later released the following statement:When Central Presbyterian Church learned of this deeply disturbing situation, we immediately reported it to the appropriate authorities and proceeded to terminate this individual from his position. We are fully cooperating with authorities investigating this matter. We are focused on caring for the victim and supporting our church community as we grieve and heal together. We are praying for all parties involved.Copyright 2018 KMOV (Meredith Corporation). All rights reserved.
