FORT WASHINGTON, Md. – Authorities have charged a Maryland pastor, his minister son and another church leader with sexually abusing four teen girls in a program for at-risk youth.
Prince George's County police say the abuse happened between 2001 and 2008 when the victims were in a program run by the Oxon Hill Assembly of Jesus Christ in Fort Washington.
The suspects were identified Wednesday as 67-year-old Joshua William Wright of Brandywine; his 46-year-old son, William Joshua Wright of White Plains; and 40-year-old Donald Jackson, also of White Plains.
Police say the elder Wright is head pastor of the church, where his son is a minster. Jackson is the elder Wright's son-in-law and one of the church leaders.
Police say the girls were abused at the suspects' homes, various parks and the church itself.
