Pastor won't be prosecuted on rape charges
BATON ROUGE - Prosecutors will not move on charges filed against a pastor last year in connection with allegations he raped a mentally challenged woman.
The decision means David Lemley will not go to trial for the charges he was arrested on in March 2014. Prosecutors reportedly said they can not substantiate the victim's claims.
The woman, who was 20-years-old when she made the allegations, has the mental capacity of a seven-year-old. The woman's father faces unrelated sex charges, though.
Lemley told WBRZ after his arrest, the victim lied.
