A local youth minister is accused of having a sexual relationship with a teenager. One of Charles Engle's students at the First Baptist Church of Mount Orab claims she had at least three sexual encounters with him.
The news of the alleged crimes are causing a lot of uneasy feelings in Mount Orab. Many people in the community are expressing disbelief over allegations that a trusted church official had a sexual relationship with a 15 year-old girl.
"Sometimes there are people that choose to break our rules, and they're going to pay when they do." Tim Cline is the pastor of the First Baptist Church of Mount Orab. He says right now he's angry. "We were shocked. We've worked with this man for awhile and I've known him before then. Never anything we ever heard about him was anything but good."
Cline says Engle worked as a youth minister at the church for the past year and a half, mentoring about 40 young people, ranging from junior high aged kids to college students. He's accused of having improper sexual relations with one of his underage female students. "If the man is guilty, we want to make sure he never works in a church again or around kids at all."
