Youth pastor accused of rape

Brian Richard Gray
A youth pastor accused of having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old church member is now in the Oconee County jail.

Thursday afternoon, Brian Richard Gray, 32, was extradited to Georgia from Alabama, where he was arrested Tuesday at a family member's home, Oconee Sheriff Scott Berry said.

Gray, of Winder, faces charges of rape and and child molestation stemming from a relationship with a teenager he knew through the Monroe Church of Christ. Gray allegedly visited the teen several times in her family's Oconee County home while her parents were away, Berry said.

Deputies believe there may be other victims, and that Gray could face additional charges, Berry said. The church has cooperated with the investigation, he said.

Gray was being held Thursday night without bond, a jail spokeswoman told the AJC.
