LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A 28-year-old youth pastor has been charged with multiple counts of sexual molestation for allegedly having a 14 month affair with a teen girl.

Demetrius Darnell Allen, of Granada Hills, is charged with 10 counts of lewd act on a child, one count of possession of child pornography and one count of contacting a minor for sexual offense, according to the District Attorney’s office.

KNX 1070’s John Brooks reports.

Allen, who works at First Baptist Church in Venice, allegedly began a sexual relationship with the girl, who was 14 at the time, in March of last year.

“The victim was with the church, but the alleged activity did not occur in Venice; it occurred in the San Fernando Valley,” said Sandi Gibbons, a spokesperson for the District Attorney’s office.

He is currently being held on $1 million bail.

    and they never arrest those child molesting priests. just ship them off to another church to molest even more kids…. the catholick church is either full of gay priests or child molesters, either or….. **$% jesus.

    It has NOTHING to do with them being catholic, or even religious. They’re gay and child molesters because they’re white.

    Yea, they are just what’s being said. Either gays or child molesters, regardless of wht they do or where they live. If this guy chose to be a pastor, it was to close to more children.
