Pastor on trial for alleged sex crimes


A Shreveport church pastor is facing federal prosecutors for alleged molestation of young girls.

Andrea Lewis, a pastor of Act on Faith Church is accused of having sexual contact with girls in his church choir during trips out of state.

Today his defense attorneys called character witnesses to the stand, and they described him as a Godly man, and a good man.

The jury also heard an audio recording of an interview from a sex crimes investigator.

During the interview the investigator asked Lewis if he touched a girl's vaginal area when she spent the night at his house. Lewis told the investigator "No."

The state also has a case against Lewis, and prosecutors are watching this case to determine how they proceed.

Closing arguments are expected tomorrow morning.
