AREA PASTOR CHARGED WITH INAPPROPRIATELY TOUCHING A TEENAGE BOY

An area pastor is charged with inappropriately touching a teenage boy. Idaho Falls police charged a long-time religious leader with five counts of lewd conduct with a minor. Each carries a penalty of life in prison.

46-year-old Steven Michael Sheridan, the former pastor of St. Paul's United Methodist Church has been arrested-- this after police recorded two recent phone conversations between the victim and Sheridan. Based on those conversations, police moved in and arrested the now former pastor. Sheridan was the pastor of St. Paul's United Methodist Church five years ago when the alleged crimes occurred. Since then, he's been pastor of another church.

The victim who was 13 at the time, and is now 18, said Sheridan was like a mentor. They took trips together, and during those trips, Sheridan touched him sexually. One time, the pastor allegedly touched the boys genitals saying he was checking for cancer. St. Paul's new pastor says this is an issue they're tackling in a sensitive way.

A possible second teenage boy just came forward. Police are interviewing him now. They say more charges could follow.
