SUMTER, S.C. - A former youth pastor here
has been charged with forcing a 12-year-old girl to perform oral sex
in a hospital bathroom, police say.
Troy Glenn Clark, 34, of Lexington, N.C., has been charged with
criminal sexual conduct with a minor. He was released on a $20,000
surety bond Monday from a Sumter detention center.
Clark has been accused of assaulting the girl after attending a
Halloween program at a local church in October 2001.
The girl, now 14, filed a report with Sumter police last month.
Clark was arrested last Friday in his hometown in central North
Carolina, where he is helping at a local church.
Clark was not a youth pastor at the time of the incident but was
a friend of the girl's family.
"Of course we're afraid there's a potential for more victims,"
said investigating officer Angela Rabon.
Rev. Eddie Richardson of Sumter Baptist Temple said Clark left
the church last year after more than four years as youth
