KILGORE, TX (KLTV) -

A Kilgore pastor has been reindicted for aggravated sexual assault of a child.

Kilgore police say an investigation revealed that Glenn Douglas Barton, 62, of Kilgore, sexually assaulted a child between 2009 and 2013. Prior to the investigations, Barton was a minister at Calvary Way Pentecostal Church in Kilgore.

In March, Kilgore police charged Barton with aggravated sexual assault of a child.  Those charges were ultimately dropped by Rusk County District Attorney Michael Jimerson, who wanted to wait for forensic evidence to be returned before pursuing charges.

Once the forensic evidence was returned, it revealed that Barton cannot be excluded as the suspect. Police say forensic evidence matches the victim's story.

A warrant for Barton's arrest should be signed on Friday evening and he is expected to turn himself in through his attorney. He will be arraigned on Saturday.

The investigation included recorded audio conversations between the victim and Barton. 

The original arrest affidavit states that Barton is recorded as saying,"I expect you to do what we've always done and that's cover for each other."

The statement was followed by Barton asking the victim if he was being recorded.
