Harnett County Pastor's Conviction Overturned

Posted February 24, 1997

— A Harnett County pastor no longer faces charges of child abuse. Reverend Bob McArthur was convicted of beating two children in his congregation at the House of Prayer in Clayton.

Now a jury has overturned that conviction saying the abuse evidence pointed more toward the children's mother.

Accessory abuse charges were also dropped against the children's father.
