Detroit Pastor charged for sexually assaulting thirteen year old girl

Man these stories never get old.

Detroit -- A pastor was arraigned today in 36th District Court on multiple charges for allegedly sexually assaulting a teenaged member of his church.

Timothy Jackson, 46, faces six counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct for his alleged activities with a 13-year-old girl.

Bond was set at $50,000, requiring $5,000 cash for his release. He was ordered to return to the court Sept. 1 for a preliminary examination of the evidence against him. The charges carry a maximum sentence of life in prison.

The alleged incidents occurred between 2009 and 2010 at Abundant Life Church, 437 Livernois in southwest Detroit, according to a statement issued today by Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy.

Jackson was pastor of the church at the time of the alleged assaults.

There was a fire at the church Aug. 6 that is believed to be suspicious and possibly linked to the alleged assaults, Detroit police said.
