MESQUITE (CBSDFW.COM) – A North Texas youth pastor’s volunteer assistant is in jail after being arrested on child sex assault charges.
Police in Mesquite arrested 33-year-old Steven Winn on Monday.
Court papers show that Winn is accused sexually assaulting of a 15-year-old while he was a volunteer assistant to the youth pastor at Open Door Baptist Church in Mesquite.
This is the same church that made headlines back in 2011 when a former senior pastor, Matthew Jarrell, was arrested on a rape charge in West Virginia.
Reports said that Jarrell committed suicide by hanging himself in his jail cell just two days after his arrest. Jarrell had been awaiting trial on rape charges in San Antonio, according to reports.
Bond for Steven Winn is set at $75,000.
