SAN FERNANDO (CBS) — A 28-year-old youth pastor was accused of having a yearlong affair with a young girl who attended the Venice church where he worked.

Demetrius Darnell Allen, of Granada Hills, was charged with 10 counts of lewd acts on a child, single felony counts of possession of child pornography and contacting a minor for a sexual offense.

Allen pleaded not guilty to the charges and was being held on $1 million bail.

Allen is scheduled to be back in court Aug. 16 for a bail hearing, and Sept. 15, when a date will be set for a preliminary hearing.

    What’s new with ministers? I love the way they say, “We’re doing GOD’s work.”

    Almost as bad as congress saying they are doing the work for the people.

    Ministers that do this are not God’s people but Satan’s hoards.
