BAY MINETTE, Ala. (WKRG) — New information tonight about a Bay Minette pastor arrested over the weekend on child sex charges.

Sunday morning, the Faith Community Full Gospel Church was without its full-time pastor. Instead, 53-year-old Norman Washington was behind bars at the Baldwin County Jail charged with enticing a child and three other child sex abuse charges.

Washington turned himself into authorities Friday night after a grand jury indicted him earlier this month. The charges stem from an investigation that began in 2017.  Investigators say the 11-year-old victim claimed Washington touched her inappropriately above her clothes. Investigators say the child was known to Washington and not associated with the church.

Washington has denied the charges, posted bond and was released from jail Monday afternoon.
