NY pastor charged with sexually abusing children
LOCKPORT, N.Y. (AP) - A 70-year-old church pastor in western New York is charged with sexually abusing at least two children.
Investigators say felony sex charges against Roy Harriger Sr. are from alleged incidents between September 2000 and September 2001 when he was pastor of Lyndonville Wesleyan Church in the town of Yates in Orleans County.
Harriger is now pastor of Community Fellowship Church in the Niagara County village of Middleport.
Harriger's accusers are now adults, who reported the abuse two months ago. And investigators say there also may be victims in New York, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
Harriger is being held in Orleans County Jail on $250,000 bail.
