— A Scotland County minister has been charged with having sex with a juvenile, authorities said Monday.

Darryl Todd, 32, of Pembroke, was charged on Aug. 23 with three counts of statutory rape. The charges stem from alleged sexual encounters with a 14-year-old girl in April and May, said Capt. Kim Monroe of the Laurinburg Police Department.

Todd, the senior pastor of Spring Branch Missionary Baptist Church in Wagram, was released on a $50,000 unsecured bond.
