Jeremy D. Caraway, 36, a pastor at the Loyall Church of God, was perp walked from his home on Sunday after an investigation by the Kentucky State police. He is alleged to have had sex with the young female member of his congregation. The arrest warrant states that they had sex in his church.
The married father of three said that he had a bad feeling from above (God?) that something bad was going to happen. Caraway gave an interview to media from behind bars. He stated the girl was coming on to him while he was only trying to counsel her personal issues.
"She was talking about things that she wanted to have done and things that she was doing to herself," said Caraway. He said she started sending him suggestive messages weeks ago. "I'm a fat bald preacher, and her response was that you are sexy."
Facebook and text messages between the two showed a relationship. Pastor Caraway, who goes by the nickname "Kyle" on his MySpace, remains in Harlan County Jail on a $45,000 bond.
Caraway has a conviction of armed robbery in Florida in 1997. He has moved around often and has been a pastor in many churches over the past few years in Florida, Louisiana and Indiana.
