Police say a 51-year-old man who served as a minister of an independent church in Jefferson, Ala., was arrested last week and charged with raping a minor.
Police chief Tommie Reese says Yahudah Israel was charged with rape after a nearly year-long investigation by his department.
Israel was being held in the Marengo County jail pending a $25,000 bond on each count.
