A former Scott County pastor has been arrested and charged with almost 300 counts of sodomy.
Currie Pat Clark, Jr., 58, turned himself in after hearing Georgetown police were looking for him Wednesday.
Clark is charged with 296 counts of second-degree, which are Class C felonies. Georgetown Police say Clark sodomized a 12-year-old boy from 2006 to 2008. Some of the alleged incidents occured at Clark's home.
"It is a very serious charge," said Georgetown Police Lt. Robert Swanigan. "The boy was 12 years old at the first time of the alleged offense. This is devastating to the child and to his family. "
Clark was the pastor at First Presbyterian Church in Georgetown from 1987-2004. He was also involved in the A.M.E.N. House charity in Georgetown.
Clark is being held in the Scott County Detention Center on $20,000 bond.
