NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The FBI says a former minister wanted in Kansas City, Mo., on molestation charges has been arrested in New Orleans.
Spokeswoman Mary Beth Romig said Monday that 48-year-old George Spencer is accused of child molestation and forcible sodomy against a girl at the Greater Works CME Church, where he was an associate pastor.
She says he was arrested Friday by the FBI New Orleans' Violent Crime Task Force, which got information about his likely whereabouts from the bureau's Missouri office.
Romig says Spencer is awaiting extradition to Kansas City, where he will be formally charged on the warrant in February by Jackson County.
